What the brewers say

“The focus of this beer is twofold: the farmhouse ale characteristics imparted by the French saison yeast and the IPA hops profile founded in Mosaic’s characteristics and complemented by Centennial.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Herbal hops and lots of floral iris and rose. A bit of white pepper in the background. Lots of fresh grassy hops come through. American hops seem to be evident as the citrus and floral stands out.”

Flavor: “Rose-like floral hops hit in the front and carry through the finish with a slight bitterness. The lemon/orange notes sit in the back behind the more dominate hops flavor. Carbonation is good, and the finish is slightly dry with a lingering bitterness. Dry yet somewhat creamy.”

Overall: “Hops character is super floral but other than that, it’s lacking any character that would make it related to an IPA. This beer had a lot of flavor to it—hops were nice on their own, as were the citrus fruity notes, but it’s not significantly different from other saisons we’ve tried with American hops that didn’t claim the ‘IPA’ moniker.”
