Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month Azacca Golden Ale

The Azacca hop, named for the Haitian god of agriculture, has an interesting history with Foothills. I found that it was first introduced in May of 2014 in their IPA of the month series Maya Bonita; see May 2014 of review of said beer. It quickly became one of their favorites so much that they made it one of the featured hops in their HopJob Session IPA. Azacca Golden Ale pours a very bright yet very hazy yellow and gold color with a three finger fluffy white head that is like a cloud, and fades as slow as an iceberg floats by. The aroma is tropic scented with a bit of pineapple. The taste lightly hits you with a bit of a tropical hoppy not at first then gently lets a juicy pineapple with a faint mango with touches of a nice mandarin. But there is a nice hoppy bit on the finish that has a little tropical sweetness to it that leads you taste buds to a nice hoppy topical bitter after taste that fade nicely until you take another sip. I will say again that Foothills Brewing has brewed yet another great Hop of the Month. I give Azacca Golden Ale A+, it has a nice juicy tropical flavor to it that ends in a nice bitter hop finish. I can’t say a bad world about this Azacca Golden Ale. I recommend that you try it now. I might have this one again! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
