Golden Road Brewing Co. Heal the Bay IPA

What the brewers say

“The straw colored malt body takes a back seat to the bright citrus and juicy, tropical hops contributions, making this the perfect IPA for the beach.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Pineapple, lemon, grassy, herbal. Fairly grassy once you move past the citrus notes. The malt is light, subtle, grainy.”

Flavor: “A delicate sweetness with a light body carry through the taste. Sweet notes with grapefruit, lemon, and some dryness of pine. Some onion and tropical fruit. The bitterness is in line with the light body and adds complexity without being overly bitter. Clean simple malt bill below.”

Overall: “Enjoyable mixed aroma with tropical fruit, citrus, and considerable pine. The bitterness is palate cleansing and refreshing without being too harsh. The malt finish is lightly sweet. Dangerously drinkable.”
