El Goodo is this year's fall-run batch, and I gotta get on cpf'ing this guy cause the trip is hours away. Let's just chat briefly about hop combos, shall we?
Centennial (homegrown) + Citra (not homegrown) = magic.
No real surprise there, right? At least some commercial beers have demonstrated the divinity of this pairing (saving a bottle of Summit's 25th Anniversary Ale for a special occasion ... like tonight. When I get home. And sanitize my Beer Gun.).
Both hops stand on their own just great, but there's some nasty, nasty (and I mean that in the best possible way) humulene alchemy that happens when these two kids get together in your wort and hopburst. The treble notes of Centennial fruit and the mango funk of Citra ... it becomes armpitty and catty (and I mean that in the best possible way), pungent and earthy like a freshly-dug rhizome on a cloudy spring day.
What's your favorite hop combo?
