What the brewers say

“Wheat IPA.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lemon and lemongrass, with some light grassiness and dank green tea, herb, and mint. Floral hops character comes through as rose petals and wildflower with some spiciness. Fruity notes of orange, lemon, and pineapple. As it warms, the herbal notes diminish and allow more hops bitterness to come out.”

Flavor: “The malt character is light, but delivers the hops well. Notes of pine, herbal, lemon, pineapple, and grapefruit pithiness give way to some stronger, dank earthy flavors. It’s a bit dry with some warmth. The herbal tea flavor and malt sweetness up front transition to a bitter finish with medium spiciness throughout the sip.”

Overall: “This might be a touch too bitter; a bit more malt character would be spot on with all the hops going on. I really enjoyed the hops choices. The mélange of stone-fruit, citrus-peel, pine, weed, lemon, and herbal notes makes it unique and delicious. The depth of hops flavors provides a nice cross-section of both tropical fruity flavors and more resinous earthy flavors.”
