Lime Scene Investigation
Hopped Key Lime Lager
OG 12°P / IBU 68 / ABV 6
Using Azacca and Sorachi Ace for bittering hops provides a solid foundation of bitterness. Azacca hops, known for their tropical fruit notes, may contribute a touch of mango, papaya, and citrus flavors. Sorachi Ace, on the other hand, is known for its unique lemony and herbal qualities, which can add an interesting twist to the bitterness.
The 30-minute addition of Azacca hops likely imparts some of their tropical fruit characteristics and potentially boosts the hop flavor without overwhelming the overall beer. For aroma hops, Lemondrop and Contessa are chosen. Lemondrop hops are known for their lemony, citrus-forward aroma, which can nicely complement the Key Lime flavors. Contessa hops are a more unique variety, they give more pear and herbal qualities and they contribute their own distinct aromatics to the beer. With the Lemondrop and Azacca hops working together, the lemony aspects of both hops could help balance the acidity of the Key Lime and create a harmonious flavor combination.
Overall, this Pale Lager with Key Lime is a complex and refreshing beer that showcases a blend of citrusy, tropical, and herbal flavors. The interplay between the acidity of the Key Lime and the hop selection could create a unique and memorable tasting experience.
