What the brewers say

“DDH double IPA dry hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Idaho 7, Strata, and Nelson.”

What our panel thought

“Bright citrus aroma—lemon, lime, tangerine, grounded by subtle pine, earth, and Angostura bitters. Lemon-like citrus flavor backed by subtle malt sweetness, tempered by bittering notes of green tea, pine, light earth. Bitterness lingers into the finish, melding into citrus pith.”

What our editors thought

“Clean, fresh, interesting—nothing stands out, yet everything adds. Tropical fruit, crisp floral notes, citrus, light grass. Lightly sweet sip supports tropical notes. Crisp backbone feels bitter without being bitter.”
