Seventh Son Humulus Nimbus

What the brewers say

“Berry-piney hops and light malts; toes the line between IPA and pale ale.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Resinous and piney with lemon supporting. Clean malt bill. Nice orange and clementine. Very subdued aroma overall.”

Flavor: “West Coast hops to boot, showcasing the piney, resinous character with a touch of light citrus. Light bready malt sweetness pairs well with the softly orange, lemon, and resinous hops character. Finish is very clean, with a pleasant lingering bitterness and pine, lemon hops notes.”

Overall: “Nice flow of slightly sweet citrus into the strong hops bitterness. The aroma is a little unassuming, but there’s really nice hops complexity that lingers with the dry, bitter finish. The malt profile isn’t particularly complex, but it has enough underlying bready sweetness to balance the bitterness. Clean and well-done, while deceptively simple—it’s hard to make a beer taste this effortless. Dry, crisp, very well- balanced.”
