about zythos

 

Introducing, ZYTHOS

 

The third and final release form Hopunion tells of yet another new variety that they will soon breed and offer brewers. They explain that the demand for “unique IPA style hops” is as strong as ever and that varieties like Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, and Palisade have been very successful for them. The need for a new and exciting hop that “replicates the chemical structure of the finest IPA/Pale Ale finishing hops” is needed.

 

Hopunion worked with Alpha Analytics to create a hop that “delivers aggressive alpha acid levels, balanced beta acid levels and low co-Humulone levels for a smooth finish”. The new hop is called ZYTHOS and is named after the traditional Greek word for beer. The target alpha and beta percentages are 9.4 and 5.5 respectively. I can’t wait to see what our local brewers come up with to display the unique characteristics of this hop. I have a strong sense that it’s going to impress the hop lovers amongst us.

Made my way down to Brooklyn this week and got to try some goodies.

This was pretty solid all around, But I have to say it was among the best looking beers I've ever had. It had the best head and head retention I have ever seen.

This was excellent, pretty sour, and pleasantly skunked.

This was pretty decent too. The story behind it made it excellent, without the story, it would still be pretty ok.

grand teton brewing co

sweetgrass american pale ale

 

this is my second beer from grand teton. I liked the bitch creek and this one is great as well.

If anyone has ever had stuff from these guys let me know which ones I should be looking for

I can probably get them to order it.

Now I'm prepared to be scolded for this, but just lookin for some ideas.

 

I've never been too much of a beer drinker. I used to drink some back in the day, but I just don't care for the cheap water beer we used to drink. Could drink it again just to get torn up, but I'm wanting something better.My friends just stay with their ol keystone, coors, busch and don't recommend much. What would you recommend for a "beginner" I suppose you could say.

 

Any ideas for some good brews I could go try?

I vote you start with avery, but that's just me.

 

I think some good advice too that's not just the brewery is styles:

 

Start with Pale Ales

 

Then have an IPA. Taste the difference and similarities between the two.

 

Then move to American Ales like Arrogant Bastard. Darker, larger malt profile, but maintaining the Hoppiness of the west coast style.

 

etc. etc.

 

Just a thought.
