Fort George Brewery Java the Hop (2022)

What the brewers say

“Collaboration with Coava Coffee Roasters. Single hop, single bean featuring Rakau hops and Papua New Guinea Nichol Colbran Coffee.”

What our panel thought

“Fresh-brewed medium-roast coffee, light chocolate, a touch of vanilla on the nose. Effervescent quality across the tongue. Chocolate-forward expression of coffee, moderate bitterness linger into the finish. Hop flavors of chocolate-covered strawberries, cut damp grass, hazelnut. An intoxicating experience.”

What our editors thought

“Light coffee note in the nose, present but not cliché, with a toasty roast structure. Sip is a thoughtful blend of juicy hops and light toasty, nutty coffee, like a solid blonde roast. Intriguing.”
