Notes:

Descriptors: pine, berry, tropical, dark ripe berries, blackberry, peach

Has a pronounced pine/berry tropical smell almost darker berries, maybe blackberry. I think the keg hops do work slowly in the fridge, maybe it’s not necessary to keep them at room temp for a few days if you can be patient to get that aroma from the second dose. At first taste I was worried about oxidation, that’s not the case. Good lesson, stop worrying about your beer right away, give it some time. Great beer, if I didn’t like experimenting so much, I’d brew this more often.
