Melvin Brewing Cloudy 5000
What the brewers say
Hints of tropical, mango, pineapple, papaya, peach, melon, citrus, and floral. Mild lingering sweetness, slightly mineral, light bitter linger, medium body, slightly warming.
What our panel thought
Starts with a soft tropical sweetness with a heavy dose of peppercorn spice that quickly gives way to a pleasant moderate bitterness. Mango, orange, and peach dominate with an underlying lime and passion-fruit tartness to cut through the sweetness. Chewy but not cloying with a medium-dry finish.
What our editors thought
Vivid rich tropical papaya and mango notes grounded with hints of earthy fruit skin. The sip offers a touch of fruit sweetness backed by a perfectly placed light bitterness that makes the fruit pop without stealing the scene. Overall, the body is effortless.
