Fiction Beer Company Logic is Relative

What the brewers say

“Logic is Relative has more than 4 pounds of tropical hops per barrel. This beer produces an aroma reminiscent of fresh orange juice, ripe melon, and guava. The malt bill was designed to allow the senses to focus on hops flavor and aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fairly subtle overall. Orange and peach dominate things with a touch of complex malt sweetness, some pine, and lemon beneath.”

Flavor: “Starts with a fair amount of malty sweetness with a rich mix of fruity hops. Orange and peach dominate here as in the aroma. There are also some nice tropical fruit and pine and hints of coconut and brown sugar. Bitterness is right on for the style. Lingering fruit notes of mango, banana, and a bit boozy as it warms.”

Overall: “Awesome complexity! Love how the hops character and base beer come together for a mixture of fruit and sweet flavors. A little heavy overall, and the nose belies the underlying complexity, but well balanced otherwise. The fresh fruit flavors belie the alcohol strength.”
