What the brewers say

“Our flagship American IPA highlights the distinctively aromatic Australian Galaxy hops. The nose bursts with pine, citrus rind, melon, and pineapple. Pronounced flavors of peach, clementine, and tropical fruits are accentuated with moderate bitterness and balanced by a light, biscuity malt character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate fruitiness, with notes of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, lemon, and mango, as well as some spicy hops notes that jump out and welcome you. Juiciness on the nose.”

Flavor: “Tropical fruits—mango, pineapple, grapefruit, clementine, and orange—hit right up front with sweet juiciness. A medium spicy hops bitterness carries and cuts off some of the sweetness, giving off big pine hops and slight coffee notes. Full and fluffy mouthfeel, luscious and smooth, with nice carbonation. Finishes semidry with a touch of sweetness.”

Overall: “There’s so much happening in this beer—it’s a field day for taste buds. The complexity of the citrus and tropical fruits is enticing, while smartly braced and balanced by slight hops spice. Put simply, it is very good.”
