Fremont Brewing Lush IPA

What the brewers say

“Lush is made with a hand-selected blend of malts and lush, tropical hops to help you bridge the last days of Winter and the coming of the Spring fever. We hope you enjoy this tropical treat, keep your sunglasses handy, and wash away your cares in the coming Spring rains.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Piney and dank with a slightly sweaty note. Some lemon, tropical fruit, peach, apricot, light cattiness, and a hint a grainy malt sweetness.”

Flavor: “The initial taste was surprising with a sweetness that gets immediately overwhelmed by bitterness. Classic West Coast blend of pine and citrus. Tropical fruit, mango, pine are firm but balanced in the bitterness. Light body with a sweet caramel finish that hangs out and cuts the hops down a tick.”

Overall: “It’s not as dry and mouth-wateringly bitter as other west coast IPAs with the touch of lingering sweetness to soften things up. A very pleasant, balanced West Coast IPA. Great classic American hops character.”
