Tröegs’ LolliHop

BY PATRICK CUTHBERT

Lollihop

If Jolly Rancher made a hop flavored candy, Tröegs‘ LolliHop would be it. With a Mosaic, Citra, and Azacca hop profile there’s all kinds of resinous, stone fruity goodness in this Double IPA. My exposure to East Coast based West Coast style IPAs is limited, but from what I remember of Lord Hobo’s Boomsauce, this beer would fill in nicely if you’re looking to scratch that itch. There’s notes of papaya and pineapple imparted from the Azacca, and the dry hopping from the Mosaic and Citra adds to that, plus citruses like orange and grapefruit. A slight haziness is mostly derived from the wheat and oat grain profile that is added to the standard pale ale malts. Pours a hazy, gold with a thin head with little lacing. Overall, a delicious East Coast IPA, with West Coast traits.
