Blackbird Brewery Chimcoe West Coast IPA

What the brewers say

“Mélange of Citra and Simcoe lends itself to a fruit-forward medley on the palate. Effervescent, dry finish.”

What our panel thought

“Aromatic bouquet of grapefruit, grass clippings, peach, white grape, evergreen, a touch of the dank. Comes through just as pronounced in the flavor. Balanced bitterness supported by the right amount of malty sweetness. Finish is dry, firmly bitter.”

What our editors thought

“Papaya, mango in the aroma with a leafy green note alongside some fall leaves. Peppery piquant bitterness in the flavor with very subtle fruit undertones.”
