What the brewers say

“Juicy, hazy, double dry-hopped East Coast–style IPA showing up at just the right time to the party with Citra, El Dorado, and Mandarina Bavaria hops. Brewed with 2-row, pale wheat, and rolled oats, fermented with S-04, unfiltered and canned.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of tropical going on. Soft orange and grapefruit notes with a touch of pale malt sweetness to provide balance. Grapefruit with a twist of canned pineapple blends together nicely.”

Flavor: “Extremely reminiscent of canned pineapple-orange juice without the extreme tartness. Bready malt balance is well executed letting the hops shine without allowing the lingering bitterness to overwhelm things. A chewy texture on the end but not heavy.”

Overall: “Overall balance is very good with just enough bitterness to clean the palate. The aroma grows on you. The bright hops are present, but not the star, and it could use higher attenuation.”
