I love big hoppy IPA's as much as the next guy but lately I have noticed a hop variety or combination of hops in some IPAs that I just do not care for.
They smell and taste like marigolds... yuk. I do enjoy the piney, citrus, grapefruit and floral notes of most of the usual hops.
What is that hop? I want to try to avoid it in my homebrew.
Some of you probably love it whatever it is, but to each his own.
It's just not my favorite flavor. Just can't stand that Marigold aroma and flavor.
It's kind of offensive to me.
Thanks for your help.
