Here's a little experiment I did today. After tasting my most recent IIPA I thought it could use a little more something in the flavor. Normally, I get a fair amount of citrus quality to the flavor of this beer through the use of Columbus, Chinook, Cascade and Sorachi Ace hops that I add late in the boil. (For those interested, here is the recipe for my Sorachi Ace Only IIPA).But, this time around those flavors and aromas are too subdued for my tastes. My normal solution to this dilemma is by dry hopping in the keg with an additional charge of Cascade or Sorachi Ace but I'm out of both of those hops and so I decided to try something new.
