Notes: Our next IPA features new experimental hop HBC438 from YCH. We used a simple Golden Promise malt bill allied to some oats for a clean body and smooth mouthfeel. A small amount of Cascade was used in bittering, with Citra, Simcoe and HBC 438 in whirlpool and Citra, Simcoe HBC 438, and Mosaic in dry hop. An expressive aroma featuring Pineapple, Mango, and Coconut is backed up with a punchy tropical flavour full of stone fruit and lime. The finish is slightly minty/spicy with an herbal bitterness. Unusual, intriguing, fruity and weirdly moreish we’ll leave anymore interpretations of this crazy hop up to you.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Aroma has milky notes (burnt milk, crème brûlée), orange peel and citrusy hops. Taste is sweetish with caramelized onion and a light hop astringency without any bitterness.

Poured to an oversized wine glass.

A: The body is orange and medium hazy. The head is white and very minimal and with no lacing.
S: The aroma is more resinous than citric, having a not-too-prominent profile for both aromas.
T: The taste begins with a tangerine, orange-like hint, having a medium to high presence of hoppiness flavours, connecting very well with the mild bitterness of the citrus. Not fantastic but interesting.
M: The body is medium, carbonation is nominal, bitterness is high.
O: Not as good as Half Cut but interesting.
