Fremont Brewing Sky Kraken
What the brewers say
A contradiction of the senses offering ripe melon, juicy citrus, pineapple, and pepper flavors to the brave.
What our panel thought
Strange, compelling nose: fruit salad, punch bowl, peach, guava, candied mandarin, and dragon fruit get some interference from dankness and sweaty socks. Flavor is less exciting, as bright fruit fights for exposure with dank pine. A bit muddy and flat. Soft mouthfeel.
What our editors thought
Dank nose with a layer of funky tropical fruit and a white-flower element—engaging and inviting without being obvious. The sip offers a touch of smooth, earthy bitterness and a tinge of sweetness, with a polished sheen that pulls everything together.
