Great Lakes Brewing Great Lakes IPA
What the brewers say
Bright and citrusy, with lemon peel, Simcoe, Mosaic, Azacca, and Lemondrop hops.
What our panel thought
Pine and the berry character reminiscent of spruce tips hit your nose first. Light orange zest notes give way to a dry, moderately bitter finish. A light cantaloupe-like quality appears as it warms. Low-moderate aroma with medium-full flavor. The bitterness overwhelms the malt bill on the finish, almost bringing a light astrin-gency.
What our editors thought
Lemon and pine on blast with a super light body and tight bitterness. Crushably bright with a lingering lem-on-forest bitterness and fruitiness reminiscent of spruce tips.
