Hop Project #49 bottled 4th week April

Hey, what's that popping out of the ground? It's the latest version of our ever-changing IPA! This batch used Amarillo, Magnum, Cascade, Columbus, and Centennial. That blend was used at first wort, 75 min, 45 min, 30 min, 15 min, 10 min, 5 min, and 1 min. It was dryhopped with mostly Centennial and a little Amarillo.

I'm picking up a lot of citrus and a little rose in the aroma. It has a wonderful body of chewy hop resins, not as much upfront bitterness but a nice lingering one. We went back to some of the hops we have really liked on this one, but with a different schedule in the boil.

I predict this one will not stick around long.
