Had on tap at Slider's taproom (my trusty kegerator) poured into a standard pint glass. This beer had a short lived, light head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Typical piney cirusy aroma that doesn't quite match the straight forward bitter IPA goodness. This is my 3rd keg of Hop Project and is proving to be my favorite of the three. Paired very well with a bowl of spicy gumbo.

Poured into a snifter on 11/27/11

Bottled Oct 21

Rustic copper color with honey-brown highlights at the stem. One finger head of sudsy foam. Thin, soapy retention. Pretty good amount of lace, too.

Smells green - lots of resinous pine. Lemon zest and grapefruit pith spice it up. Backed by bready notes and a hint of caramel. At nearly five weeks old there is a lot of hop crackle - prickly pine and biting citrus bitterness. Toasted bread takes a back seat to the hops. Finishes very dry. My only complaint is a feel that seems thin and watery to me. Carbonation is on the high side but not totally out of place considering the lively hops.

Overall impression - not too shabby at all. This certainly isn't the most complex or flashy of IPAs, but it'll scratch the bitter itch. Plus, it's plenty quaffable.

From the Yazoo blog:

"Hop Project 60, bottled 10/21/11.
First wort hopped with Perle, then Magnum at 75 min, Cascade at 30 min, Warrior at 15 min, Columbus at 5 min, and dryhopped with Columbus."

Poured from the bottle into a red Solo cup. Frothy head leaves tons of lacing. Smells like citrus and tropical hops with maybe a hint of some light malts. Tastes like citrus hops, a touch of tropical flavors, and a well ballanced malt backbone. Pretty bitter on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium and a little creamy.

Glad to see #60 turn out so good as the last 2 batches were sub par for me.

Bottle brewed on 10/21/11 poured into imperial pint glass.

A- Clear, dark orange. Slight red notes. A finger of off white head.

S- Fruity, with grapefruit and hint of...is that mango? Fairly bitter smelling, with a background, but clearly present malt backbone.

T- The fruitiness in the nose is virtually gone in the taste, showing up only slightly on the finish. Taste is a wash of dry, bitter, slightly pine hops mixed with a strong malt backbone for an IPA.

M- Medium bodied.

O- Not the best but not the worst of the HP series. If you like straightforward bitter IPAs, it's worth a shot.
