What the brewers say

“Juicy, candied peach and nectarine up front backed up with a nuanced white wine on the nose that continues straight through in the flavor profile. Pillowy soft mouthfeel, with a restrained bitterness on the nish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A blend of juicy fruit character and grassy earthiness from the hops. Deep fruit character pulls on tropical-fruit notes and citrus character. Grapefruit dominates, with some blood orange and black peppercorn notes. Spicy!”

Flavor: “Very juicy notes of mango and melon, some pineapple, maybe a little strawberry-like flavor. Some juice-like sweetness complements the sweetness of the malt. Maybe a hint of saltiness? Deep herbal components suggest oregano and cumin.”

Overall: “A little bit of every hops character from ‘the list’ but predominately dank and fruity. This is a fairly sweet DIPA that goes light on the bitterness, pulls out more fruit flavor from the hops with the slight sweetness, and really showcases gorgeous hops flavors. Would pair well with a dessert—a great palate cleanser. Very unique take on the style that’s delicious and intriguing.”
