Default Sorachi Ace!

Wow, I had Brooklyn's Sorachi Ace last weekend at a beer fest. Wow, that hop is begging to be in an IPA! It's just so bright and citrusy. Anyone do and IPA with it yet? Maybe a SMaSH?

I've used it in an IPA. It was very nice.

Of course, being the goofball that I am, I used the SA at flameout. Yes, flameout. Being a 14%+ AA hop, it left an oil slick on the kettle.

The IPA was really good, though.

I have used it in light beers to make a nice summer quaffer. I agree this could make a really good IPA. I have about 3/4s of pound in my fridge. I might have to do that.

Only after I get my half-pound cascade amber into a keg. 65 ibus.

I need to get my hands on some. Where's a good place to pick up pellets?

Great to hear that a brewery has come out with a Sorachi based brew and an IPA to boot. I have a bunch of Sorachi Ace leaf that I planned on using in a Wheat beer but now I may also try it in an IPA based on your glowing review of Brooklyn's Sorachi based IPA. I don't think that I will do a SMASH with it though. I think that it would be a bit too much. Montanaandy

To clear up some confusion I do believe Brooklyns Sorachi Ace is a Saison and not an IPA as some appear to believe. With that said this is a hop I am anxious to use.

Yes, it is a Saison. I just thought the citrus hop character would go well in an IPA.

It seemed that another poster or two may have been under the impression it was an IPA, I was just trying to be helpful and clarify.

The citrus flavor could be very interesting in a number of style including an IPA. I really like the citric hop flavors and this is one I am excited to work with.

It does make a great single-hop IPA. The only problem is that it fades quickly, and after a month or so it isn't nearly as hoppy.

It works well in an American Wheat too.
