Metazoa Brewing Hoppopotamus
What the brewers say
"A burst of floral bitterness from the Citra and Mosaic hops is balanced by a soft sweetness."
What our panel thought
"Tropical mango, passion-fruit aroma; soft edges of grapefruit, caramel, pine. High hop bitterness with floral, piney flavor, balanced by light caramel sweetness—a harmonious malt cushion. Clean finish, nothing to trouble more gulps. Standout IPA in retro form."
What our editors thought
"Subtle orange-and-tangerine nose, pleasant sweetness. Sip brings sharp bitterness—bold hit leaves nothing to the imagination, settling into a familiar citrus rhythm that fades into pith and zest, steering clear of sweet."
