What the brewers say

“This year, Cosmik Debris features Simcoe, Idaho 7, Mosaic, Cascade, and Chinook hops that together develop an aroma of citrus zest, melon, and subtle pine. The beer delivers a balance between firm bitterness and malt with notes of star fruit and orange marmalade on the palate.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Slight orange creamsicle. Medium mango and pineapple. A touch of onion and dankness, but in a good way. A light piney, floral character as it warms. Some malt sweetness.”

Flavor: “Heavy on the grapefruit rind with a healthy amount of dankness and slight onion. A touch of malt sweetness keeps the hops from taking over. An assertive bitterness provides some balance without getting aggressive. Light spices are well balanced with the bitterness.”

Overall: “An assertive beer that hits some nice notes without being too daunting. Juicy flavor with pine and light dank notes balanced by a moderate bitterness that extends throughout the taste. I would love to pair this beer with a large wedge of sharp cheddar cheese.”
