Profile: Hops with a berry fusion and a little sweet prickly touch
We wanted to make a flavor with Yakima Hops and some berries.
After much dicking around trying to figure out what we all got in common, it took us on a wild ride through flavors that would maybe or maybe not fit with Yakima Hops.
I don't really wanna go though all the suggestions we had, but we had quite a few.
No sweetener is needed for this mix, but if this isn't sweet enough for you, may we suggest FW Sweetener.
Add your choice of coolant if you like.
I started out with an idea of an Alien franchise inspired mix. Originally I thought Nostromo would be a fitting name, but was left not really feeling the inspiration. Then Xenomorph came into play. For those not familiar, those are the adult form of the creatures in the films.
This is a fizzy, lime soda with just that touch of Ginger Ale to give it a push.
It was easy where I had to go with this then. Xenomorphs have green, acidic blood. So Lime was a given. And I knew I wanted it to be an in your face, intense recipe.
I originally chose VT Shisha Lime and FA Aurora as my base, but it seemed that Aurora was smoothing out the lime too much and that is not what I wanted. With a second opinion from u/FomentLife, I decided to scrap Aurora and add FA Lime Tahity Distilled to get some wonderful zest going in the mix.
u/Staybert found success with FLV Citrus Soda in his Citrasberry recipe, and I knew right away it belonged here.
u/OdieDoodah gave me the suggestion of TFA Ginger Ale to add an extra level to the "blood".
CAP Hibiscus brings some syrupy goodness into the fold.
This came together in an AHA! moment and I'm quite pleased with the results.
You know how they say "nothing good ever happens after 2am"? Well that’s a load of s*!t. Per usual Alfred and myself (eyemakepizza) kept Isuamadog up waaay later than his bedtime, he strapped on a headlamp and we were feeling something tropical so we went to work.
We came up with Guava, Pineapple, Lime, and Apple, and some Fizz.

So normally this is where all the development notes would go. Normally. Problem is, there really aren't any. It just worked. FLV Pink Guava is the star of the show here and it does it so damn well. FA Lime Tahity Distilled and INW Pineapple are the background flavors here, they play off the Pink Guava really well. Even though Cap Double Apple is the highest % and our original intention was for it to be a dominant flavor, it ended up being very subtle and added a great bit of depth and heartiness to the overall flavor. VT Fizzy Sherbet does what we love it to do and adds some fizz into the mix.
Right on the S&V Pink Guava is very dominant, not to the point of muting out the other flavors, but it's there, it's out front and it wants you to know it. After a day or two, the Pink Guava mellows out a touch and everything balances out but also blends together beautifully. We are left with a super tropical refreshing juice that you're not going to want to put down.

Who doesn't like a refreshing sorbet? With spring right around the corner and my trip to Florida coming up soon, it was time to make a refreshing vape to bring with me. This is my take on a lime and coconut sorbet.
I understand many people will not have Vape Train's Sorbet Base, get it if you can. Chefsflavours carries it. It's a magical potion. When you get it, be careful not to get too heavy handed with it, as you will mute the sharper notes. Without this flavor, the recipe is still good, it just doesn't have the sorbet effect.
For the lime note, it was a no brainer to use Lime FLV, because it tastes like sweet lime slushy juice. It's a phenomenal flavor that holds its potency as the juice ages. I could have used it as the only lime flavoring, but, I experimented with a few other limes to add. When I tried adding Lime Tahity Distilled FA for some zest, it just filled the lime note out so well. This is optional.
The coconut note is not very strong in this recipe, and that's what I was going for. Sweet Coconut FLV is what I decided to use. It's a milky coconut that sits nicely in the recipe, and comes out more after a few days. If you want more coconut, I added Coconut Candy TFA at 0.75% in my different variations while developing this recipe.
For the base of the recipe, I chose Frozen Yogurt WF. It's a sweet, creamy and not very tart. This is a great flavor. I experimented using Vanilla Bean Ice Cream by FW and TFA, but decided that the frozen yogurt worked better for my liking.
To sweeten it up, I added 0.50% of Super Sweet. This is optional. It's pretty sweet without it.
Additional cooling agents are optional. The Sorbet base provides some cooling effect.
FEEDBACK IS WELCOMED. IF YOU MIX UP MY RECIPE AND REVIEW IT, IN RETURN, I WILL MIX UP A RECIPE OF YOURS AND GIVE YOU AN HONEST REVIEW.
I tested many different variations and I'm happy to release this.
This is a shake and vape, but the flavors pop after 2-3 days. I primarily use the wasp and serpent mini, and usually mix it at 60-70VG. I don't like a hot vape and usually use a resistance around 0.5
I figured since we are now eating em, we may as well vape em too.
This was quickly thrown together... never to be mixed again.
FA Whiskey - Gives it a bite. Something subtle in the backend to throw off everything. Adds that soapy hand sanitizer.
JF Marshmallow - The pods sit on a bed of chalk. At a higher percentage, the dry marshmallow adds to a whole bite.
FA Orange / Lime Tahity / Liquid Amber / HS Blueberry - Based off the blue and orange pods, easily needed a fruit note. Orange is self explanitory while the Blueberry needed a more 'green' note sting. The Lime Tahity brings on that Pledge lemon, while Liquid Amber gives a gel feel overall.
CAP Jelly Candy - Some plastic note, almost waxy coating.
CAP Super Sweet - Wayne told me to.
This is an interesting recipe and probably wont appeal to everyone. I wanted to do something with chocolate and I thought about doing a pairing with lime. When I went to draft the recipe I was thinking of my recent tests on FA limes, cold pressed would have been fine and gave me a more natural lime that would go nicely with chocolate. I thought though about distilled, which is far from a natural lime. Distilled reminds me of the green suckers from the dentist office, that very distinct green hard candy that really tastes far from a real lime. So I decided to go for it, see where this would take me. Then I added some coconut and creams to really give more depth to the recipe. After a few revisions this was what I came up with. Enjoy!
