Triptych Brewing Batch 600
What the brewers say
A hazy triple IPA dry hopped three times with Citra. Layers of silky oats and our favorite British malt combine to form this smooth beer that overflows with sherbet, mango, peach, and citrus.
What our panel thought
Moderately strong tropical and citrus up front. Pineapple, orange, and a bit of guava. Alcohol is evident in the aroma and is a bit solventy. Tropical continues into the flavor but is richer, like very ripe fruit. Moderate sweetness throughout with restrained bitterness. The sweetness drops in the finish a bit, and the alcohol helps balance as well.
What our editors thought
An orange-smoothie nose with glimpses of sharp orange curaçao liqueur flows into a loosely structured and quite sweet body that would benefit from a touch more bitterness.
