Hop head tasting

  1. I just acquired Zombie Dust, Surly Abrasive, and Heady Topper all in the same day. In which order should I drink them?

    I would go with the order you listed them. But they are all so solid, they each deserve a single sitting :)

    Better have a couple of each!
    Change the lineup each time.

  5. Order of lowest to highest ABV. Water and saltines inbetween.
    Im not thinking you will fully taste HT after the Abrasive

    Drink one a night.

  7. I would definitely not drink them in one night, best to spread them out to enjoy them on their own.
    That's a damn haul!
  8. I agree with this. No sence in taking the chance of blowing your palate.
