Hop Project No. 004 is a 5.1% ABV/38 IBU pilsner from Sly Fox Brewing Company (Phoenixville/Pottstown, PA). Released on 11/20/17 this beer is brewed with German Tettnang hops. This version follows No. 001 (Feb 2017) and No. 002 (May 2017) and No. 003 (July 2017) in this experimental IPA series.
Pouring No. 004 you will get a light golden color with a moderate bright white head, leaving minimal lacing in your glass. Aromas of straw, bread, and citrus are immediately noticeable. No. 004 is also packaged in a 360 can (like all hop project beers) which helps bring these aromas out.
Tasting this brew brings a light body with a very clean and smooth mouthfeel. Upfront you get flavors of mild citrus, bready malts, and some pine. Mild bitterness and carbonation lead way to a nice crisp finish on this one.
No. 004 is different from the No. 003 version which was an IPA, but equally as tasty! Which have you tried from this series?
