Station 26 Bang Bang Double IPA
What the brewers say
"Piney, hop-forward. Good malt balance."
What our panel thought
"Nose of orange, pineapple, and honey; hints of zest and sweet tomato. Nondescript malt sweetness powers juicy-dank hop flavors—citrus and pine—intertwining and flirting with medium-high bitterness through a long, warming finish. Bright, sweet, juicy sort of hop wine."
What our editors thought
"Herbal bitterness on the nose with a touch of anise, but little of the favored citrus aromas we’ve come to expect. The sip brings more fruit—lychee, lime—but with a marker-sharp edge that keeps it at arm’s length."
