In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Figueroa Mountain Lizard's Mouth

Aroma: “A lot of hops character: melon, tangerine, orange peel, lemon, pine, garlic, green pepper, onion, and chive. There’s some honey graham cracker and a very slight grassy note.”

Flavor: “Blueberries, pineapple, dank, green onions, orange in a Styrian Golding sense. Really nice mellow bitterness that doesn’t overpower and a malt sweetness that counters a lot of the hops presence. Mid-palate hops are somewhat limited but present with an almost pie-like character. No alcohol warmth to distract.”

Overall: “A semi-West Coast–style IPA with some added nuevo hops character.”
