What the brewers say

“A big backbone of malt, with plenty of caramel sweetness and just a touch of chocolate and toast. It's the epic grapefruit hops aroma and flavor, provided by a huge dry hops addition at the end of fermentation, that makes this beer shine.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Malty, toasty malt character. Citrus and grassy hops character, though overall relatively subdued for a pale ale. Some malt complexity can be parsed out in the aroma—fresh bread crust, slight caramel. Hops are a bit subdued but still present, coming through as citrus.”

Flavor: “Malt sweetness balances well with the hops. The hops come through more in the end with some bright citrus notes and a little grass-like character as well. Finishes slightly bitter but still clean. Hops flavor are much brighter than the aroma suggested—more juicy, tropical fruit flavors than in the aroma.”

Overall: “Enjoyable and a more malt-forward pale ale that can still showcase some nice citrus hops character. A delicious beer that has a wonderful flavor with a mild aroma. A bit too malty and sweet for an APA—dial back on the caramel malt and up the late hops to give a bit more current APA qualities.”
