Cherry Hoppin' Ale
Hello all! Quick update on the Cherry Hoppin' Ale. Tasted it today, one week in the bottle, and it is coming along great! Aromas of malt, cherries, and grapefruit, with the tastes of sweet malt, cherries, and a lingering finish of pink grapefruit! Wow! The Citra hops are fantastic! They give a great fruity aroma and citrus aroma and flavors that are outstanding! These are becoming one of my favorite hop varieties! Goes well with the cherries and pale malts I used in this beer. There is a "brag and shwag" coming up soon at The Brew Hut that I will attend and take some of these in to see what others have to say about it. I'll keep you posted! Thanks again for reading! Cheers!
