Highland Park Brewery Hello, LA
What the brewers say
"Flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, mango, and passion fruit from the Citra and Mosaic hops."
What our panel thought
"Bright, citrusy, floral nose—orange blossom, hint of vanilla. Flavor starts bright and sweet on rich malt—juicy tang drops into earthy, grassy, pine-tree-sap medium hop bitterness. Some sweetness and resin linger."
What our editors thought
"High-key guava and passion-fruit notes bathe the nose in light. That lightness pushes the contrast in the sip, at the expense of mid-tone values—blown out between blazing top-fruit notes and a sharply defined bitter end."
