Notes: We take our same process with the original Yojo and change up the grain/hop bill. Large amounts of Citra and Amarillo hops get layered over of bed of Golden Promise malt. Tons of mango, peach, papaya, and floral hop flavors with a light/sweet graham cracker malt character.

Can poured into a Russian River Brewing Co pub glass

A: Pours super hazy golden peachy amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and laces very nicely.

S: Ripe citrus, tropical and stone fruit, slight floral notes, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Bright juicy citrus and tropical fruit, orange, mango, passion fruit, peach, lemon, apricot, pink grapefruit, papaya, and a hint of melon, floral notes, a little spicy, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, soft on the palate.

O: Really solid, but the imperialized version, The Holy Hermit is definitely a notch above.

On tap at Moonraker...heard a lot about this and maybe my expectations were a little higher than it should have been. A good tropical citrus nose in which the taste follows...nice finish, but is not close to Yojo in which it has been compared to with just a little different hop profile.
