What the brewers say

“This our “bench-mark” beer. A medium bodied ale with aromas of soft citrus and earthy pine combined with very subtle notes of tropical fruit. This highly hopped American-style IPA leaves your palate with a lingering dry and bitter finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Blueberry, strawberry, pineapple, orange, lemon, mango, pine, and herbal are all well blended and pleasant. Light bready and bread-crust malt, almost like a flour tortilla.”

Flavor: “Well balanced with significant fruit character from the hops. Citrus and red berry with a touch of mango and grassy/herbal to top things off. The malt is clean and supporting as it brings a slight toasted bready character. Bitterness lingers with a touch of coating sweetness.”

Overall: “Nice berry-forward fruity aroma with some supporting citrus and grassy. Maybe a bit sweet up front, but the bitterness balances it well and isn’t harsh at all. All of the pieces fit together well. Very drinkable.”
