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.
