Bent Water Brewing Company Suborbital
What the brewers say
A nebula of tangerine and tropical-fruit flavors will welcome you to another world while keeping you grounded on this one.
What our panel thought
Inviting nose with broad, earthy citrus and hints of tropical fruit, apricot, pear. Hop flavor is restrained but balanced—citrus, stone fruit—with light lingering bitterness and balancing malt sweetness. Muted somewhat by a mild chalky note. Finishes dry and bitter but lingers pleasantly.
What our editors thought
White table grape with a touch of grape pixie stick in the nose. The sip is pretty dry, leading with a rounded grapefruit bitterness that doesn’t fall back on malt sweetness. A bit sharp and unyielding straight through into the finish.
