What the brewers say

“Notes of papaya, cantaloupe, lemon, and passion fruit are on full display in our first New England–style pale ale brewed exclusively with South African hops varietals. The lower ABV of the base beer places the emphasis squarely on the hops varietals, with the signature mouthfeel you come to expect from our New England–style IPAs.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Soft, rich, juicy aroma (almost Orange Julius without the sickening sweetness). Orange, lemon, grapefruit with bready malt in the background.”

Flavor: “Soft on the palate with moderate bitterness throughout that lingers into the finish. Despite the good head retention, the carb is fairly low. Citrus all day on this one with orange playing the dominant role. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel but light overall.”

Overall: “Very drinkable for how complex the hops aroma is. Nice beer.”
