What the brewers say
Brewed with Citra Incognito and double dry hopped with Citra.
What our panel thought
Brilliant light orange haze. Right out of the gate, it hits on all the right notes from front to back. Intriguing clean citrus and tropical-juice bomb highlighting pineapple. Vibrant mouthfeel with layers of pineapple and orange and a full and refreshing finish.
What our editors thought
Alternating waves of sweet citrus and musky herbal diesel funk offer an intriguing nose that changes by the minute. The sip is more citrus hops–forward but with a lingering herbal hops note that tastes the way freshly kilned hops smell. Not just a fruit smoothie, but one for those who know.
