What the brewers say

“This beer is brewed using only the finest U.S.-grown hops from our good friends out West. With a robust hops aroma from the dry hopping process, this beer delivers on its promise to provide a full sensory assault on your taste buds.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A subdued aroma with notes of green hops, jasmine, lemon, melon, and honey. Grapefruit and pine hops notes with an underlying Pilsner malt sweetness.”

Flavor: “Moderate hops bitterness and a very straightforward lemony and green hops flavor. Finish is extremely dry with high carbonation and a hops bitterness that lingers. The subdued maltiness is hardly perceptible.”

Overall: “This beer is very simple and very clean. Its single focus is nice if you’re looking for something refreshing and not overly complex. Classic, yet well-executed, American IPA that focuses more on the grapefruit and pine hops over some of the newer hops varieties.”
