 Decided to rack the Japanese Sunshine tonight and add two ounces of Lemondrop for aroma. A good call because the hop aroma is barely detectable. So far this beer is quite bitter for the style....almost too bitter, but I suspect that hoppiness will fade. I also goofed in my calculations and the OG is actually 1.056 and 36 IBUs instead of 1.049 and 30 IBUs. A much hoppier beer than I intended but the hydrometer sample tasted good.The hop aroma from Lemondrop should be a nice compliment to the hop bitterness and flavor. This will likely be the hoppiest version of Japanese Sunshine to date.
