Formally X331 from Indie Hops and OSU
Fresh tropical citrus, with a hint of wafting joint smoke from around the block”.
High total oil of about 3.5ml/100g of hop material.
A very “clean” hop, without the tendency that many potent hops have to throw diesel oil/machine oil notes, or extreme “BO” or “cattiness”. Just a refreshing medley of luscious hop character.

Did a SMaSH with this hop and can say it tastes like advertised! I get a lot of fresh oranges and a slight dank. Once it comes back in stock and/or gets a real name this will be on my regular order/stock list!
I did a 5G batch and dry hopped with 4oz of X331. Quite tasty, lots of citrusy goodness. I did not catch the hint of joint smoke, but this was just a sample before kegging, it was not carbed. I like this hop! Not sure it will replace the citrus-hops standbys but it deserves a spot alongside them.
