Arpa Darpa 692
IPA w/ experimental hop HBC692 (Talus)
The Arpa Darpa research initiative continues with experimental hop HBC692 (recently given the codename TALUS). The breeders who brought us Citra and Mosaic have developed in their underground bio-bunker a new hop mutant derived from Neomexicanus parentage. A blossoming aroma of sweet creamsicle, mamey, papaya, and dried roses wafts from the glass. The palate follows the nose with additional notes of zesty pink grapefruit and black peppercorn. A complex and promising new hop varietal!
