Melvin Brewing Eureka (House of Flying Barrels) West Coast Drip

What the brewers say

“DDH West Coast–style IPA with Galaxy, Mosaic, and Vic Secret.”

What our panel thought

“Sulfury diesel-fuel hop aroma dominates. Light grapefruit, lemon, and pine notes follow. Simple but defined malt backbone of biscuit and pie crust. Businesslike bitterness. Spicy black pepper, anise, light diesel, pine, lemon, and grassy notes in the flavor. Dry finish with a firm lingering bitterness.”

What our editors thought

“Overt and almost stinky with deep tropical and diesel aromas. The sip blunts the sharpness of the nose with a wide tropical-fruit and glycerol-like body.”
