These are the experimental hop varieties that hopsshack.com has recently released. I'm not sure how I feel about the chocolate coconut variety but I may try out the Lemon drop. I can't find any info on these through google so if I do end up trying them I will report back to here. Anyone else who tries them should do the same

Lemon Drop
Big herbal, blackberry, “Super Cascade”, menthol, grassy, citrusy, lemon, citrus, pine, tobacco, licorice, orange, grapefruit, pepper, “Amarillo like”, mint.
Typical Alpha Acids 5.5 - 7 %


Chocolate Coconut
Dill, herbal candy, cocoa, anise, tropical, saltine cracker, mint tea, peach, stone fruit, Jolly Rancher, passion fruit, caramel, toffee, vanilla, chocolate, watermelon, cocoa butter, coconut, chocolate.
Typical Alpa Acids 14 - 15%

Those sure are some random taste descriptions. Looks like everything but the kitchen sink.

Weird. Seems expensive for 1lb of uknown, untested hops with bizzare, convoluted, contradictory descriptions.

I got all my stuff ready for this weekend. I'll be splitting up a 5 gallon batch and making 5 one gallon maris otter SMASH pale ales.
Chocolate coconut and lemon drop will be among the mix

Making a Lemon Drop single hop in couple weeks to try it out- Has that dank, piney resin of simcoe but has an overriding pungent lemony/citrus that just coats the inside of your nose, then fades dynamically into a complex range of stone fruit and menthol- Can't wait to try this stuff! A brewing buddy of mine ordered a few of these new experimental ones- The Chocolate Coconut, and the Meridian smell like nothing I have ever smelled in my life- Though convoluted, the descriptions are pretty spot on. He also got some El Dorado and man o man if that stuff tastes anything like it smells, it may turn out to be my new favorite hop variety.
