What the brewers say

“Explore new worlds of flavor as two American hops collide to create waves of tropically dank flavors.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Overripe pineapple, light plum, banana, suggestions of pine, moderate earthy, hint of floral. Good complexity is added with some nice malt biscuit-like sweetness.”

Flavor: “Great blend of the hops and malt sweetness in this beer. Some biscuit notes. Nice orange, mango, pineapple, and melon-like fruit sweetness. The bitterness kicks in to balance the sweetness and is a nice addition without making this too bitter. The beer is crisp and bright through the finish. Alcoholic warmth adds to the overall character without overwhelming the palate.”

Overall: “Great double IPA with some nice bright fruit characters that are showcased well. Dangerously drinkable, this high octane IPA leaves a pleasant warmth in the aftertaste that makes one want another sip. The barleywine of IPAs.”
