If you’ve ever had a Sapporo, then you know what Sorachi Ace can do. It is nicely lemony citrus with an alpha acid count up to 12.9%. It was grown for a very long time by the Sapporo Brewery in Hokkaido, Japan, but then went out of commercial production for a while. It was resurrected in the U.S. in 2006, and is reportedly excellent in several beer styles, particularly those desiring a citrus flavor. It has also been reported as imparting flavors of orange, cilantro, dill, and even oak.
