Bale Breaker Brewing Co. Hazy L IPA
What the brewers say
"Smooth and dry with a moderate bitterness. Dry hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and Sabro."
What our panel thought
"Dank, diesel, garlic hop notes; hints of onion, green pepper. Light, crackery malt and low sweetness blend with smooth bitterness, marrying into subdued hop flavor of light grapefruit, diesel, garlic. Light mouthfeel with subtle minerality. High drinkability. Odd choice of hops."
What our editors thought
"The nose cuts with clarity—confidently bright orange and soft lemon that don’t need sweetness as a crutch. The sip is a bit more PNW bitter than Massachusetts sweet, but that bitterness is gentle and reassuring."
