not a hop strain i have heard much at all about, let alone tasted, so this was a treat, especially being from these guys, who just do the hoppy stuff so darn well. from the tap its a bright golden colored brew with a good inch of white head, looks like honey. the hops are really neat, really distinct, they obviously made a simple grain base to showcase how unique these taste, which i think was genius. smells like the skin if a kiwi fruit, juicy but kind of tangy too, very fresh and lively, with some more traditional but equally fresh bitter grassy notes. the taste matches the smell pretty well, i still get a kiwi thing, made not quite ripe, still bitter. i get less citrus than expected, this has a very vegetal growing photosynthetic element, summery for sure. how new is this hop? why arent more people talking about it? where did it come from? so interesting here. the more i drink of it the more i like it, and its plenty high alpha, there is some serious bitterness later one. really cool and delicious introduction to this hop for me, i hope to get my lips on some more before too long. worth seeking out of you are not familiar with them.

Draught pour at Knee Deep tasting room into an English pint glass. Pours a golden yellow with a finger of high density white head that dispated fairly quickly and left a little lacing. Nose is very pleasurable, tropical and sweet. Taste reminds me a bit of Mosaic hops, lots of tropical attributes and some citrus. Mouthfeel is solid, carbonation spot on, and the finish clean a bit dry with a smidge of astringency. Hoping this one makes packaged format, but until then I'll take a growler for later. Solid single-hop APA!
