What the brewers say

“Emphasizing Amarillo, Horizon, Summit, and Glacier hops with support from five other American varieties. Hops were added in every conceivable part of the brewing process.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Skunky dankness, lemony hops, and notes of grainy sweetness. A little citrus character in the back adds sweet fruit-juicy notes. Elements of tropical fruits, dried morel mushrooms, freshly tilled soil, and orange.”

Flavor: “Bright and clean hops profile fades quickly into a nice, lightly sweet grainy finish. Simple and clean. Lemon tartness and light pine flavors dominate. The hops fruit character is showcased here and carries through the finish. A slight bitterness but not too bitter. Some nice warmth is present in the finish as well. Appreciable malt body leads to a long, smooth, balanced finish.”

Overall: “Simple for a double IPA, but quite balanced. Rather full-bodied. Just enough bitterness to cut through the malt and lots of citrus notes with a big dank/earthy punch. Those who don’t love super-bitter IPAs will really enjoy the balance in this. This beer was great. ”
