Notes / Commercial Description:
Session IPA

Brooklyn Scorcher #366 is a very tasty summer pale ale featuring a hop so new that it doesn’t have a real name yet – right now it’s just called “HBC 366”. But this hop does have parents. Jason Perrault of Perrault Farms crossed the Warrior variety with a “wild” hop back in 2001. Jason says: “The brilliant coloration of the leaves combined with a nice growth habit and exceptionally formed cones with abundant lupulin (the repository of all those aromatic oils), resulted in a strikingly beautiful plant.”

Working with the legendary hop breeder Gene Probasco, Jason took cuttings and started growing dozens of plants with fellow grower John I. Haas. Tom Nielsen, hop guru with our friends at Sierra Nevada Brewing, helped them figure out that this new hop was indeed delicious in beer. By 2009, the Smith family of B.T. Loftus Ranches were growing some too, and today “HBC 366” occupies about 1.2 acres of land in the Yakima Valley of Washington.

And here it is! Brooklyn Scorcher #366 is a hoppy pale ale that’s dry, minerally and fruity on the palate, snappy in the center, and bursting with the citrusy, piney notes that make our new pal 366 so special.

Another session "style" IPA out there,had on tap at Sessions.Poured a slightly hazed apricot color with a tight formed half finger white head that sat for a longtime.Aromas of juicy citrus fruits,orange and not overly bitter grapefruit,a firm not overly sweet biscuit malt base is on par with the hops.Thinner feel and kinda slick doesn't lend itself well to the flavor profile.Light citric hops along with some herbal notes up against a biscuit malt base.No frills and a little thin in the feel but not horrible by any means.

Brooklyn scorcher - served on tap at The Office in Morristown NJ.

Pours medium dark amber bronze. Thick white foam. Bright pine nose. Citrus and flowery too. Taste is light citrus malt woven with a minor hop. Quite Lemony. Crisp finish. Very tasty summer beer, most enjoyable. Good hop to be noticed, but not overwhelmning. 4 4 425 375 4

look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 2

Appearance: sunny yellow, slight haze, mostly transparent though, with a near bone white head. Looks decent.

Aroma: lightly lemony, faint citrus, and the buck stops there.

Taste: light lemon/citrus, nearly nonexistent.

Mouthfeel: I know the ABV is low, but this is Michelob Ultra watery.

Overall: sad, sad beer. I had a Green Flash Surfs up before this and thought it was sort of average...I appreciate it a lot more after this.
