Sorachi Ace Hop Description
This Japanese variety has a bold Lemon aroma and taste with maybe a dill, cilantro, and coconut notes to it too and a slight background oak flavor. Typically used for bittering, but with that focused lemon note it would probably do well when used later or after the boil. Beer Styles: Probably any beer that would work with a lemon taste, a Saison or an IPA.
