Russian River Brewing Happy Hops

What the brewers say

"Tropical, berries, citrus, fruity."

What our panel thought

"High New World hop aroma—pleasant, if one-note, orange candy, pith—with low resin note as it warms. Quite sweet up front—bread-crust malt, fruit tang—rolling right into dry and bitter. Lacks a juicy middle. Bitter finish lingers. Sweet then harsh, with a lovely nose."

What our editors thought

"Light, but distinct, passion fruit and pineapple on the nose. Flavor loses some of that definition, as big, tropical herbal-bitterness quickly overpowers more delicate fruit notes."
