Grains of Wrath Crypt Keeper
What the brewers say
"Citra single-hop IPA with bright flavors and aromas of citrus, grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruit."
What our panel thought
"Enticing Life Savers/Gummy Worm candy fruit nose; woody tropical hops, low bready malt. Medium-high bitterness with a fresh-squeezed orange-grapefruit hop flavor. Easy-going, fruity, juicy, finishing clean and dryish. Could handle a bit more bite for structure. Straightforwardly fruity, lovable, very easy to drink, with unconventional and appealing hop flavor."
What our editors thought
"The aroma quickly evokes sweet orange, tangerine, and clementine, with creamy, gentle fruit notes that would be equally at home in something more hazy. The sip is a study in minimalism, all distractions eliminated to leave the core essence: a beautiful, reasonably dry expression of Citra—slight herbal bitterness, big citrus, perfectly placed carbonation. A master class in flavor integration. It’s hard to imagine a better Citra-based West Coast IPA."
