|American IPA using only whirlpool hops!|
Cloudy and hazy with a soft gold/orange color. Little head retention, though I attribute this to the beer being pulled before carbonation in the keg was completed. I am actually suprised at how hazy this beer is after holding at 33 degrees Fahrenheit for almost 5 days. Maybe whirlpooling the hops constantly increases the amounts of undissolved proteins/dextrins?
Medium- body, not watery but just a step below an average ipa's body.
Aroma(order from strongest to least):
Crushed pine needles, resin, pine sap, marijuana, grapefruit, lemon peel
Intense bitterness(though this beer is still green) that lingers after an off-dry finish. With how bitter this beer is the slight residual sweetness balances it well. Little to no malt presence, this is a very very hop forward flavored beer! Citrus, pine and dank flavors last with a considerable finish. This is hands down the best beer I have brewed in my life. Take it from me folks, hopstanding/whirlpooling is the best method for retaining the delicate hop oil aroma and flavor. Cheers!
