On tap at The Waterfront, Brooklyn, NYC.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a combination of citric, herbal and earthy hops with a touch of caramel.

The taste consisted of a full caramel malt with a cleansing herbal hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

A heavy APA for sure, but tasty nonetheless.

Pours rusty copper with thin white head. Smells of earthy malts. Brown sugar and roasty sweetness with orange and pine hops. Sticky feel.

Creeping up on being an amber. Maybe too thick to be very drinkable, but not too challenging at the same time.

Crystal clear amber with a fine, light beige cap. Sticky, solid lacing clung to the glass. Good head retention. Soft aroma, spicy with a hint of lemon and malt. A little on the mild side. Moderate bitterness with spicy, peppery, earthy hops throughout. Light caramel malt sweetness. Medium to light bodied with fine carbonation, a bit dry. Nice texture. I really liked this hop. It was a little weak in the aroma, but really worked well on its own.

Growler at PPRBSG09. Pours a clear orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of bready malt and light fruits. Flavor is quite bready and malty with the same light fruits in the finish. Still, totally dominated by the malt. Very similar to the rest of the pale ale series and quite drinkable.

I had this one on tap at Capone's.

Poured a medium and clear amber color wtih a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, pine, and some citrus. Tastes of citrus, pine, and caramel. Nice hoppiness with a nicer malt balance in the tastes.

2009 Hop Project Beer.

A: Crystal clear amber body. Moderate off-white head. Light skim and spotty lacing are left after the head dies down and after each sip.

S: Lots of caramel malt. Slight bready malt undertones. Not much hop in the nose.

T: Caramel malt and herbal, floral hop notes. Not a whole lot going on here, but it does taste decent.

M: Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness after each sip. Slightly undercarbonated for my liking.

D: The hops simply were not present enough to showcase what the marynka hop is capable of. My #10 of the 11 single-hop hop project brews.
