In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Aslan Brewing Company Batch 15 IPA

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.”
