What the brewers say

“West Coast–style IPA brewed with hand-selected Strata, Mosaic, and Chinook. Super peachy, resinous, and tropical.”

What our panel thought

“Notes of ripe peach flesh and caramelized sugar crystals complement subtle orange and honey undertones; light bread, pineapple, mango, guava, and moderate lemony citrus. A touch of pine adds fun complexity. Very smooth flavor, medium bittering. Guava, peach, gooseberry, and moderate cranberry notes add complexity. The alcohol is quite smooth and sneaky.”

What our editors thought

“Weedy citrus nose, dank but alluring. Warm, woody citrus in the sip, moderately bitter, balanced with a very light sweetness that lingers to buffer the bitterness.”
