Session ale by the dudes at Rooie Dop. This was the second run fom Ot the Explorer.
From a bottle into a snifter
Hops: cascade, saaz and citra
APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with good retention. Cloudy gamboge orange with lower levels of carbonation. A splotchy wisp and ring remain leaving some lacing down the glass. Good looking beer.
SMELL: Grapefruit, honeydew melon and pineapple. Hints of lemon as well. Bold enough.
TASTE: Quite grassy, which wasn't really expected. Grassy hops, bitterness and hints of melon and grapefruit after the swallow. Bitter and grassy, very bitter in fact, floral finish is bold and lingering. Hints of grapefruit too. The saaz has stolen the show a bit here; more so than the nose. Solid and flavorful, though a little too saazy for my tastes and it is perhaps overly bitter.
PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes rather dry. Good feel for sure.
OVERALL: A good brew and a nice second running from Ot the Explorer, but the addition of saaz hops kind of made this one less enjoyable for me. I would have preferred if they had simply used the same hop bill as Ot. A little too grassy for me, and the bitterness makes it unbalanced, though a solid session beer for sure. Check it out if you can.

Amber color with a two fingers aired head with great retention and leaving laces.
Nice citrusy aroma with notes of tangerines, cantaloupe, grapefruit, roses, American yeast, pine and caramels.
Bitter flavor with citrus and grassy hops, orange peel, grapefruit, toasted malts, caramels, American yeast, spices and fresh tea leaves. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
An IPA that has the American strength and good complexity, but it is biased to noble hops.
