WeldWerks Double Dry-hopped Juicy Bits

What the brewers say

“We dry hopped Juicy Bits with more than double the amount of hops, bringing the total hops rate up to more than 6 lb/bbl, the most we’ve ever used in an IPA.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Massive passion fruit, peach, mango, tangerine, orange, and ruby red grapefruit—it’s like a fruit cocktail. Some herbal spiciness, with a bit of dank in the background. A touch of lemongrass emerges as it warms.”

Flavor: “Hops candy flavor, with big cantaloupe and coconut. Pineapple and guava emerge retronasal. There’s just enough herbal and dank in the background to remind you it’s hops and not actual fruit. It’s not sweet, but that’s the perception because of the fruity hops. The finish is light and sweet with mango and a bit of bitterness.”

Overall: “Beer will never get better than this, and it’s one of the best beers I’ve ever had. This would be a good gateway IPA if you don’t like a lot of bitterness and want to start drinking IPAs. This beer is so juicy, that if I were a sailor, I would take this beer on my voyages to stave off scurvy. It is as close to perfect as we’ve tasted.”
