Breakfast Beer Tasting: Sorachi Ace
Taste: Medium bodied, but not as easy drinking as the Citra. Somehow it seems stronger. There’s lemon, pine and fennel and a trace of bubblegum. Definitely unusual.
Finish. Medium bitterness with a tart fruit finish.
Conclusion: An interesting way to showcase this odd hop. Not as moreish or complex as the Citra, though. Perhaps it needs to be combined with more citrus flavours? One for your second cousin.
