Transient Artisan Ales A La Carte Reality
What the brewers say
"Double IPA with Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado."
What our panel thought
"Curiously inviting aroma: moderate lemon-lime, like lemon drop candy; black tea, woody notes, stone fruit, pine. Light malt backbone, caramel and biscuit tempering bitterness and softening edges. Lime hop flavor, lime zest undertones, with lemon, pine, green pepper, spicy garlic. Smooth, not too bitter. Unusual, interesting, enjoyable."
What our editors thought
"A woodsy forest note collides with soft peach and cut grass. The sip is sweet but not cloying, with more stone-fruit flavor balanced by woody bitterness."
