Same good looks as the others. Bronze topped with a healthy dollop of buttercreme.
The baseline caramel and bready maltiness shows through more on the nose, with the Ahtanum adding backing notes of orange peel and pepper. The aroma suffers from a lack of assertion and definition.
Playing off the malt template, the Ahtanums fare slightly better in the mouth, bringing a pronounced florality, orange peel, pepper, and mint hues, particularly in the finish. Bitterness is low to moderate.
While mildly interesting as a laboratory on Ahtanum, it's clear that this hop won't headline any solo tours.
