Monkish Isolation Oscillation
What the brewers say
"DDH Double IPA brewed with pilsner malt and oats with Citra, Incognito Citra, and Nelson Sauvin."
What our panel thought
"Dank sweat transforms into intense tangerine and orange. Low malt presence; hop flavor dominates. Smooth, moderate bitterness wants a touch more sweetness. Solid citrus-hop flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel. Finishes on the dry side; hop flavor lingers nicely. Clean and drinkable."
What our editors thought
"Bright Citra adjusted by a Nelson Instagram filter, boosting contrast and sharpening edges. Not sweet, not dry, it toes the Aristotelian mean; soft tropical notes backed by tight carbonation."
