Hop Test – 007: The Golden Hop
To quote the supplier, Yakima Valley Hops, “Complex fruity aromas of orange and apricot mesh with hints of black tea-like character and a pleasant fresh herbal bouquet.”
The hop was originally called Idaho 7 from Jackson Farms in Idaho, but was renamed to 007: The Golden Hop. I wasn’t able to find much other information about this hops usage.
As always, I brewed my Hop Test Pale Ale adjusting only the bittering charge to hit a target 35-40 IBU.
Smell Predominantly tangerine and orange. Some pleasant floral and herbal notes. A very nice aromatic hop.
Taste I nice smooth bitterness. Lots of oranges and sweet marmalade. Black tea hinting on Earl Grey thanks to the orange flavor. I little bit of dankness.
Drinkability & Notes This hop made for a nice drinking beer. There are enough elements to the flavor that it isn’t one dimensional.
Hop Usage I very nice hop on it’s own in this pale ale. Would definitely pair up nicely with other american or australian hops in an IPA (I’m thinking Citra and Galaxy). Would be nice in many other styles, I could see using this to bring a nice orange note to a Saison or even in an non-traditional Dubbel even in an American Strong Ale or Barleywine.
