Second release of this crazy beer, hopped only with Zappa hops. This hop variety was named on behalf of the man himself, Frank. They produce a lot of very uncoventional flavors and aromas, which is why they are named in Frank Zappa's honor. Our landrace yeasts are also known for producing unconventional flavors and aromas, so we did the only sensible thing. We fermented this beer with one of our landrace yeast cultures and used the whole bag of Zappa hops, and only Zappa hops.
Orange peel, unripe mango, dried apricot on the nose. Tropical burst of fruit, mango and fruity pebbles on the palate. Low hop burn and medium firm bitterness
No fruit was harmed in the making of this beer!
