I have had 3 oz of sorachi ace hops lying around that I haven't been able to come up with a great idea for. Never used them before. I was curious what everyone's thoughts might be on potential styles, good hop pairings, etc. I have heard they can lend an oily, diacetyl type flavor to beer- is this anyone else's experience? Are there ways to avoid this such as limiting it to early or late additions?
The only beer I've had that I can remember this hop was Brooklyn's Sorachi Ace which I enjoyed.
I was thinking maybe a belgian IPA or a lighter beer such as an off-style kolsch (but with more hop flavor aroma). A traditional IPA would also be good but I'm unsure what hops may go well with it. I'm all ears
