What the brewers say

“Meet Joe IPA, formerly Sam, named after the hops Simcoe, Amarillo, and Mosaic. Joe packs a full-on hops punch in the face.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate citrus with light pine and big tropical notes of mango, tangerine, and pineapple with hints of some Juicy Fruit, even. Noticeable sweet maltiness that’s not over the top.”

Flavor: “Grapefruit, some tangerine, and light pineapple backed by moderate resinous dank hops and a bit of malt sweetness, big mouth-fillling carbonation. A very clean beer that allows some pleasant hops flavors to shine through without showing off.”

Overall: “There’s a nice rhythm to this one, where the aroma flows into the flavor and just keeps flowing from aftertaste to the next sip and so on. The juicy fruity goodness on the nose and palate blends nicely with the earthy/dank aftertaste for an unusual, but satisfying drinking experience. Slightly subdued but incredibly drinkable—this is the beer you settle down with after getting burned by all those ashy IPAs, with their fast cars, tattoos, and promises of exotic flavors.”
