Deep Research

Time to take the Sorachi Ace hop around for a spin. Think I'll do a single-hop batch today and get familiar with the strain everyone's talking about.

Just had the hitachino nest ancient nipponia this past week. That a single malt, single hop beer using the Sorachi Ace. Pretty tasty.

Lemony? I've had beers with this hop, but not single-strain beers. I like the idea of lemony. I'll probably end up with Pledge.

Union Dew, our standard IPA, is mostly Sorachi with a wee bit of E.K. Goldings and Glacier.

not the best for dry hopping imo. Sorachi Ace with a Citra dry hop is divine though.

Maybe I'll recognize them in the Union Dew after I've had a few of these. After single-hopping, I should be familiar with the strain.

Fowl, I decided against dry-hopping in the end and just used them for aroma. Not only do I read comments, but I take your advice!
