I tried a new hop a couple of weeks ago, and just gave it a serious tasting. BTW total oils for Azacca is 1.8.
The aroma is quite enjoyable: Tropical fruits & Citrus mainly
The flavor majors on Mango, and ripe pineapple and generic citrus (maybe bending toward tangerine), Juicy fruit gum.
The only disappointment was the character of the bitterness. First, it is so reserved that I would characterize it more of a Pale Ale than an IPA, but I like substantial bitterness in my IPA's so that may be all there is to that. My wife thinks it is bitter enough to be an IPA. But there is something about the flavor or character of the bitterness that I don't like.
So if I do one again, I'll use a different bittering hop and add a bit more flavor/late additions. Overall I'd give it a solid B.
