Finback Brewery Four Year

What the brewers say

“Triple IPA dry hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo, Columbus, and both Mosaic and Citra lupulin powder.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “All the onions. Blend of green, red, white, and yellow onions. Some shallots, because the brewer is fancy like that.”

Flavor: “Pretty juicy (orange) and not a huge onion bomb that the aroma made it seem like it was going to be. Definitely has alcohol, but it isn’t overpowering. For a high-gravity IPA, this has a good amount of hops flavor (pine, resin, orange) and malt backbone. Balanced toward bitter as it should be, but all in all, it has a lot of other stuff going on.”

Overall: “Great job getting flavor from malt and hops to overpower the alcohol presence. Onion is present but citrus flavor prevails.”
