Cold Hop

Name – Cold Hop
Country – United States
Type – English IPA

Appearance – Poured a clear amber color with a good sized white head that left some lacing.

Smell – Very different hoppy smell.  I can pick up grapefruits but it is also very earthy like grass and dirt as well.

Taste – That hop smell follows up in the taste as well bitter grapefruit and earthy tones with a grainy and yeast like taste in there at the end.

While at first I thought this beer was using Cascade hops in it but later found out the hops are actually from New Zealand and the Czech Republic.  Very different hop smells and tastes with these ones.  It would probably take me a few more to get use to but I believe I could end up liking this one.  Also apologies on the pictures.  I left my camera at home while at my parents and only had my phone to take the pictures.

Overall Grade – B

      I really have no idea. I don’t remember the label saying any reason. Plus I know cold in brewing usually is associated with lagers.
