Blackberry Farm Brewery Inception

What the brewers say

“Brewed like an American IPA and fermented and matured like a lager … the best of both worlds.”

What our panel thought

“Inviting, spicy, citrus-hops aroma, with unripe banana, lighter herb, grassy hop, backed by sweet, clean malt. Flavor builds on citrus and adds crisp, assertive bitterness—just enough body to support it—smoothly arising from the grapefruit center. Finish lingers with lemongrass; bitterness builds slowly. Smooth, satisfying.”

What our editors thought

“Orange and forest nose leads to a classic spicy sip, amped in citrus flavor with big sweetness that becomes firm bitterness in the finish.”
