In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


pFriem Family Brewers Blonde IPA

Aroma: Big tropical, juicy, fruit punch, guava, pineapple. Bready with delicate floral notes and a hint of lemon and grass in the background. Very clean and bright hops profile, though maybe a touch light in intensity overall.”

Flavor: “There is a nice balance in this beer. Citrus sweetness with notes of grapefruit, lemon, some orange. A delicate sweetness continues throughout the taste. The bitterness adds complexity and carries through the finish but is not overpowering. Light body for the style, but very drinkable.”

Overall: “This beer was refreshing with a nice sweetness, some light citrus notes, and balanced bitterness throughout the taste. There’s just a touch of earthy background to keep the beer solid. I would love a couple of cans of this after an afternoon of yard work.”
