Westbound & Down Double IPA
What the brewers say
"An abundance of Enigma, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops pack big aromas of tangerine, blueberry, papaya, and other tropical fruits."
What our panel thought
"Zesty, pithy, grapefruit-peel hop nose; pronounced edges of piney/catty dankness and cooked sugar. Quite sweet, playing well with citrus-peel-and-pine flavors, dropping via high gravity through rubbery pith into somewhat abrasive, medium-high bitterness."
What our editors thought
"Mild citrus and tropical notes collide in the nose. The sip goes from 0 to 60 in less than a second, with full-bore ragged bitterness. Subtlety’s out the window. Unreconstructed."
