What the brewers say

“Hazy double IPA dry hopped with Citra, Galaxy, Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, and Comet.”

What our panel thought

“Lemon-tangerine aroma; hints of pepper-like spice, green onion, touch of pine. OJ-forward sweetness in the sip fades to reveal pepper, garlic, pine, light woodiness. Mouthfeel lacks softness to round the rough edges. Finish is a bit disjointed and nondescriptly bittersweet.”

What our editors thought

“New Zealand hop nose with sweet hints around the edges—a bit louche, in a slushy-by-the-pool way. The sip seems oddly unbalanced, sweet, without the structured notes to offset it.”
