I just did an experiment with some leftover hops to try and educate my palate a bit. I was surprised by what I experienced and would like thoughts from you all. I made a quick tea from (one at a time) Mosaic, Simcoe, Centennial, and Nugget. I heated water to 185, put one and one half pellet in a tea strainer, and poured 1/4 water over the pellet. I got an initial smell, let it steep longer, smelled again, small sip, rinse through my mouth and drank a bit. I tried to aerate when I could to get the real sense of the hop. Mosaic: this was first and I didn't put as much hop in (1 pellet). Definitely got fruit smell but no taste. Only slightly bitter. Simcoe: Not much smell, just normal hop greenery. Swished in my mouth and the bitterness attacked. Yowza. A bit like cayenne on the side of my tongue. Centennial: Dank! Definitely bitter but not as crazy as the Simcoe. Nugget: No floral at all just bitter attack. Jeez! Any thoughts on methodology or conclusions?
