What the brewers say

Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hops character for a finish that never turns too bitter.

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Hops aroma is unique with citrus, resin, and pine along with subtle floral notes. Floral, perfume-like notes present. Slight sweetness from the malt.”

Flavor: “Nice, complex hops flavor with resiny, piney notes and some grapefruit rind and citrus. Great bitterness. Clean and dry finish with little-to-no malt profile.”

Overall: “Very drinkable hops-balanced IPA with dominant floral notes. Hops complexity and diversity are nice, and bitterness is well-executed to accentuate hops. Lacks a bit of uniqueness and is a bit safe, but overall it’s very tasty.”
