Tasting Notes

Appearance
Straw yellow, clear, with a thin white head.
Aroma
Citrus hits right up front. Beautiful aromas of fresh lemon and lime, starfruit, elegant floral notes and fresh hops. Mild grain and wheat characteristics come through as well.
Taste
Citrus dominates throughout this beer, especially with lemon and lime. Fresh Thai basil and a big floral component accentuate the citrusy flavors.
Palate
This beer has a very crisp finish with lingering citrus flavors and bitterness.
Overall
The Stone Hop Revolver series has allowed us to really show off the individuality of particular hop varieties. Hop Worship takes this to another level and showcases the art of blending hops. Loral and Citra combine to make a citrus bomb that also offers quite a bit of complexity with nice floral and herb characteristics.
