What the brewers say

“Frontside IPA with locally grown tangelos.”

What our panel thought

“Bright but earthy citrus notes jump out of the glass with hints of orange, tangerine, lemon, grapefruit. The citrus notes carry through into the flavor and add a nice counterpoint to the other bittering aspects. Some orange peel and grapefruit pith–like notes emerge into the finish, creating a drying and pleasantly bitter finish. It’s all about the citrus, and it’s done well.”

What our editors thought

“Bright light citrus in the aroma, tangerine with a bit of lemon, and an inherent creamy aromatic texture. Initial light citrus sweetness in the sip persists with very light bitterness, shifting the balance toward sweet over bitter. Finishes with soft definition and a lingering light citrus sweetness.”
