What the brewers say

“Fairy Hopmother features hops from three different continents. New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin adds flavors reminiscent of white wine grapes and gooseberries. Notes of honeydew and strawberry come from German Huell Melon. American Mosaic rounds out the hops bill, kicking in notes of blueberry.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich, juicy hops aroma with lots of orange citrusy notes. Strong fruit aromas of mango, pineapple, passion fruit, and lemon, with some grassy notes and a touch of spice and pine.”

Flavor: “The hops flavors are resinous, and provide lots of fruit flavors that carry throughout the beer, showcasing each fruit: grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, light orange, and peach. Yeasty, bready body that’s soft and fluffy. Some earthy funkiness in the middle, with a light piney bitterness and a touch of malt in the finish.”

Overall: “This is a big tropical IPA with a nice neutral malt base that lets the hops shine. It’s all about the hops aroma and flavor, and the balance of sweetness and bitterness just work. A very distinctive beer.”
