What the brewers say

“Our single-hops IPA is brewed and dry hopped with Mosaic hops. Clean and crisp with an incredible balance between juicy fruit flavors and hops bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate butterscotch up front as well as some low, musty sulfur, and light bitterness. Light orange creamsicle character, as well as some pineapple, caramel, and vanilla. Earthy dank characters emerge from the back end as it warms.”

Flavor: “Moderate bitterness, with a chalky, orange-flavored vitamins character most likely derived from the malt, with some pineapple in the background. Low tropical and peach fruit flavors, along with some sweetness from the malt. The hops taste a bit muddy, muted, and grassy and fading to vegetal. There’s a bit of a catty hops note with an herbal sting.”

Overall: “Overall, it was interesting but not as exciting as some contemporaries. There are some nice juicy citrus notes, and plenty of yeast that comes through as chalky. This sample tastes a bit oxidized, and could deserve another chance in better shape.”
