What the brewers say

“A welcomed handshake to your taste buds. Light, crisp, fresh, and a little bitty bitter. Lets just say he won’t be that jerk that leaves you at the bar at 2 a.m. He’s low in alcohol. What a nice guy, that Hubert.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Hello, Hops! Juicy and luscious. Pineapple, mango, banana, and orange. One could be forgiven for thinking this is a mai tai. I could just keep sniffing this all night (but I want to drink it). Some sweet malt character in the back.”

Flavor: “The fruit festival continues! Tropical fruit notes from the hops dominate the initial impression, with just the right amount of residual sweetness and body to support the botanical goodness. Long-lasting bitterness is exceptionally smooth. Slight sweetness in the finish offers balance. The body has a high carbonation that blends the beer and gives it a smooth character. As the beer warms a bit more flavors come out, and a nice juicy character is showcased. The finish is nice with a fresh hops character left on the tongue.”

Overall: “An incredibly flavorful and delightful IPA. A fine example of what American craft brewers are doing to this ever-evolving style. Well-executed and a pleasure to drink. I want another! Great showcase of hops. Good hops flavor with a well balanced bitterness.”
