Central Standard Brewing Gamma Squeeze
What the brewers say
Brewed with European pilsner malt, malted wheat, and toasted oats, fermented cool with our house lager yeast, and dry hopped to the moon with Nelson Sauvin and Grüngeist.
What our panel thought
Heady bud nose, bright, with a slight tinge of lime. Flavor is like hop juice, a fistfight between tropical fruit and bitterness; skunky, gassy, with light licorice and a slight burn. A bit muddy. Super creative, even for an inherently creative style.
What our editors thought
Beautiful diesel-meets-tropical Nelson Sauvin hops define the nose with aplomb. In the sip, hops sing while the base lager stays mostly out of the way. Crisp but not too crisp, direct but not too thin. Beautiful way to capture the power of Nelson Sauvin in lager form.
