Named for the Haitian god of agriculture, the Azacca hop boasts intense, tropical fruit notes. Azacca IPA includes a touch of caramel malt to provide a sweet backbone to the citrus, mango and orchard fruit notes in this 7% ABV, 70 IBUs beer. The label artwork symbolizes the god of agriculture watching over a field where the ingredients used to make the beer are being grown.

I've always wondered about the name of the Azacca hop, where it came from, but never ever got around to asking anyone. It's the Haitian god of agriculture, it seems. Well, cool.

Clear, clean, bright golden/amber coloring, slim white head.

Bold and bitter hop aromatics, shimmering citrus notes, a glimmer of cat pee, orange and grapefruit shining over the litter box. Beautiful.

In the mouth: Malty mouthfeel dominates the senses first. Lush and delicious. Hops take over the spotlight soon, flashing brilliant citric notes. Delicious and deliriously drinkable. Bright and lovely, with lots of yeast action still happening. A good drinking IPA, and it tastes good, too. Cheers to that!

One of THE best APA

golden, amber pour with rather large white head with good retention. rich creamy nose with some bitterness, and loads of golden fruits like pineapple, banana, and peach. bitter pine aroma is there as well but more in the background.

Palate is just perfectly balanced and very layered, velvety texture wtith great body and mouthfeel without being dense or heavy in any way. Initial hoppy bitterness moving into more rich fruit notes, golden delicious apples as well as the pineapple and banana notes form a nice fruit salad flavour. There is some herbal and pine bitterness on the finish, but does not feel as 70 IBU's at all.

Im loving it pretty close to a perfect moderately hopped IPA in my book

Reviewed from (very) long-standing notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an unmarked shaker pint glass. I failed to note the exact date of review, but likely late January or early February 2016 based on the location of the notes.

A: Mildly hazy gold with a finger’s worth of off-white head that has average retention. A good amount of visible carbonation.

S: Biscuit malts, citrus rind hops, and herbal/grassy hops. Not a huge amount of aroma.

T: Bitter citrus, grassy, and a bit brassy. Biscuit malt sweetness. Some tangerines and melon as well. This comes off as closer to balanced than expected. Moderate bitterness in the hang.

O: A medium body for style, with low alcohol presence. A good amount of carbonation sensation.

O: Not a great beer. I'm not certain if I've had Azacca hops before this. I do think this could have used some additional dry hopping, but otherwise to specific faults. But there's nothing to get excited about, nor anything particularly memorable.
