The endless experimentation of craft beer is one of the things that make it so exciting to continue exploring. BlackStack Brewing has crafted experimental awesomeness with Hop Circles: Exhibit B.
Hop Circles: Exhibit B
Yakima Chief Hops continues to push boundaries by developing new hop blends designed to create specific flavors and aromas. BlackStack got to test a new experimental blend. Here’s how it turned out.
It pours a cloudy golden yellow, with a frothy white head sitting atop the brew. With time the foam settles and a bit of sticky lace remains.
Big pineapple and citrus aromas here. Ripe crushed fruit invades the nostrils, with a touch of mango and papaya in there too. There’s a note of fresh berry on the end.
Rich fresh juice squeezes across the tongue with sweet crushed pineapple cups coming to mind. There’s a touch of chunky mango and sweet orange. The sweetness dries a bit and the juicy flavor sits on into the aftertaste.
