What the brewers say

“Juicy, hazy, double dry-hopped Vermont-style double IPA gracing us with its presence and Mosaic, Vic Secret, and Citra hops. Brewed with Golden Promise and wheat malts, fermented with BSI-Barbarian.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Ripe mango, light tangerine, pineapple, and a touch of dank. Some pleasant earthy notes of grass, mint, rosemary, and pine.”

Flavor: “Similar to the aroma, with pleasant tropical fruity notes, but flavors are a bit muddled in the malt sweetness. Medium bitterness and a creamy Orange Julius flavor right before the finish. Moderately dry right before it goes into a medium-lasting bitter finish. A touch of sweetness then returns to the palate a few seconds later.”

Overall: A tasty New England IPA but it seems to be showing its age a bit, so drink this one as fresh as possible to enjoy the most of its pleasant hop flavors. The hops character is more West Coast, but the flavor balance is more New England.”
