4 Pines Keller Door Single Hop Series Calypso

4 Pines (AB InBev)

Released March 11th, 2014

Of all the Keller Door series undertaken by Manley's 4 Pines, the Single Hop Series has been the most prolific, resulting in a broad spectrum of beers showcasing different hops from around the globe. The concept is simple: to the same base beer is added a different hop variety so that drinkers can discover just what it does to a beer. The Calypso is something of a rarity in the series given it has gone beyond being a limited run tap beer and made it into 500ml bottles that will be available relatively widely across the country. Given it has been chosen to flee the coop, you might expect it to be the sort of hoppy ale that leaps up your nostrils and then takes a spanking paddle to the back of your tongue. However, it's actually a rather delicate affair, one that saunters gaily through your nostrils while reaching for feathers from the dress up wardrobe with which to tantalise rather than pummel the back of your tongue. What the Calypso hop serves up is of the citrusy and spicy variety, characteristics that are prominent more on the palate than the aroma. It would be interesting to see how it fares turned up to 11 in an IPA.
