I had three Brooklyn beers in the fridge that had to be drunk. Local 1 and Local 2 were pretty good, and we were expecting big things for this one, named after the variety of hop they used to make it. I found out a while ago that the Sorachi Ace hop is one of the main varieties used in Mad Tom, which we all love, so one should think that this should be just as good.
This time around, the bottle actually told us what we could expect; a farmhouse ale brewed with the Sarachi Ace hop. It poured out a light orange and smelled sweet and hoppy, like a farmhouse ale.
It tasted like a strong Belgian ale with a great hop character. It was really good, not Mad Tom good, but good.
By this point in the day, we had had four 9+% beers and were quite “happy”. When we were drinking this, we were in the pool and found out that, even when full, tulip glasses will float in the water!
