Hopsteiner Experimental #06297 "Stone Fruit"

This hop variety is available to the public for the very first time ever! Everyone at YVH was so excited when it arrived that we tore it open and breathed deep. The aroma is alive with tropical fruits and citrus, but pluots, peaches, and plums seem to be the big descriptors. We made both hot and cold teas and found that the hot tea leaned more towards a grapefruit aroma while the cold tea had darker fruits like plums and blueberries. I think we are going to try brewing a hoppy Saison with it and try to emphasize the stone fruit flavors.

Excellent hop. April 12, 2017
Reviewer: Michael Shipman from MORTON, NY United States  
I brewed a pale ale with just a 1/4oz citra for bittering with a generous amount of the exp stonefruit for flavor and aroma. The final beer is now in my top three brews. When the beer is cold the aroma and flavor lean towards peach and plums but as the beer warms apricot flavors take over. I still have 12 ounces left to recreate my pale ale then experiment with maybe a wheat or a SMASH Ale.
