What the brewers say
Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains, and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish.
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Very pleasant hop, juicy orange, tangerine, light grass (almost lemongrass), pine. Subtle malt.”
Flavor: “It’s impressive for a session beer to be 4.7% and have that much flavor. Plenty of hop flavor but it’s a bit muddled. Bitter up front, but doesn’t linger unpleasantly. Hop flavors are more muted than aroma would suggest. Subtle tangerine, grapefruit. Begins as slightly piney and bitter but carries through to a sweet grapefruit finish. A bit of malt but fairly dry and light.”
Overall: “The aroma carries the beer whereas the flavor is a little muted. Light, crisp, refreshing. Prominent bitterness. Overhopped base so it’s hard to hold up—really thin after that. Super bitter impact and trails off.”
