pFriem Family Brewers Hazy IPA
What the brewers say
Aromas of strawberry, mango, and papaya and juicy notes of grapefruit, white grape, and citrus.
What our panel thought
A mélange of aromas that tick the boxes of tropical fruit, citrus, green onion, and pine. Some likely malt-derived sweetness balances the bitterness of the hops-forward flavors that have notes of green pepper, on-ion, grapefruit pith, orange peel, and light pine. The softness of the mouthfeel also tempers the bitterness, rounding out the overall profile, enhancing the drinkability, and softening the finish.
What our editors thought
Crisp mango on the nose, very pale golden body with a significant but not overwhelming haze, and a refresh-ingly crisp yet fruity body that splits the line between East and West Coast.
