What the brewers say

“This smooth New England–style pale ale pours a hazy, straw color. A double-dose of sought-after Galaxy hops delivers a silky peach-grape aroma, tropical fruit flavors, and an elegant mouthfeel.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Heavy citrus fruit with lemon and lime and a moderate amount of grapefruit, lemongrass, peach, and herbal notes (like white pepper). No malt-driven aromatics.”

Flavor: “Lemon dominates and is supported by peach and lemongrass. There’s a creamy character, like a meringue. Malt plays second fiddle, and the ferment was clean aside from some esters kicked by the yeast typical of style. The sweet finish emphasizes fruity elements of hops.”

Overall: “Love the bright citrus character that this beer brings—almost Sprite-like lemon-lime notes that are balanced by an intriguing spiciness. Don’t expect this to taste like a ‘traditional’ New England–style pale. It’s a touch more dry despite the haze, yet remains compelling in its own unique expression.”
