What the brewers say

“This hazy, juicy IPA is hopped heavily with Citra and Simcoe, then paired with choice American wheat and 2-row barley. Intentionally unfiltered to spotlight the rawness of organic hops, this IPA is less bitter but more flavorful and balanced than most West Coast versions.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pineapple, apricot, orange, mango, citrus pith, and maybe a hint of banana. Minerality is present and blends into fruit punch–type flavors. Fairly rich for the style.”

Flavor: “Medium body and chewiness with a complex citrus hops character (orange, lemon, blood orange). Malt bill supports the high hopping rate well, yielding a soft mouthfeel and restrained bitterness that doesn’t overpower the juicy hops flavors.”

Overall: “The palate is right down the middle for New England–style IPA, with tropical, citrus, and stone-fruit hops character. Tasty beer with nicely balanced bitterness and sweetness.”
