Cerebral Brewing DDH Cheat Code

What the brewers say

“Brewed with wheat and oats. Heavily hopped with some of our favorite intensely fruity hops—Galaxy, El Dorado, Mosaic, and N1/69.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fantastic hops complexity—tropical fruit, lemongrass, with an underlying spiciness to keep it from having an overly sweet impression. Like the Smithereens: Green Thoughts.”

Flavor: “Lemon and orange flavors immediately up front with a light hops bitterness. Lots of tropical fruit—

mango, grapefruit, with a pithy earthiness. The body is rich and chewy, but it doesn’t come across overly slick or coating. Very light on the bitterness, however, with a touch of spiciness mixed in.”

Overall: “Not a bitter bomb. Nice hops flavors without being over the top. This one does it for me.”
