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.

HAHAHAHAHA So basically they smell like.... everything?

These hop descriptions are really starting to crack me up. How the hell are we supposed to know what that smells like. "It smells like sweet candy, with some passion fruit, but also some caramel, but also some vanilla, but it's kind of like chocolate. You know, I also smell watermelon..."

All joking aside, this might be the chocolate hop I've heard rumors about. They claim it has a distinct chocolate aroma. Might be really, really nice in an American Brown or Black IPA.

Yeah, getting ridiculous. Who knows maybe they do taste like all those things..

I can just see the stoned hippies sitting around a table in some oregon hop farm saying

Hippie 1: "Yeah totally saltine cracker, but I'm getting a little Jolly Rancher too"

Hippie 2: "Which flavor of Jolly Rancher"

Hippie 1: "All of them"

So.... you're saying that wouldn't be the best job ever?

EDIT: If I ever try this I will report back.... very curious about this variety. Also thinking stout/ brown.
