What the brewers say

Hoppy lager with Strata hops.

What our panel thought

Aroma of Juicy Fruit, coconut, pineapple, passionfruit, earthy pine. In the flavor: kiwi, cantaloupe, oranges. Pleasant and present hop bitterness lingers nicely on the tongue, just enough to balance those sweet flavors. Well executed. Very enjoyable. Nicely put together.

What our editors thought

A bit of diesel on the nose, with light citrus and stone fruit around the edges. In the sip, a hefty malt note attempts to balance the sharp fruit and light astringency, but it gets wide and loses some of the lager-like precision.
