Firestone Walker Mind Haze
What the brewers say
Juicy yet balanced, hazy yet lasting, and loaded with an imaginative array of tropical-hops flavors.
What our panel thought
The pleasant citrus hops aroma has a bit of fresh-squeezed character. In the flavor, this picks up a creami-ness reminiscent of Orange Julius. Some mild pine notes come through. The malt supports this without get-ting too cloying, softening the mild bitterness in the finish.
What our editors thought
What it gives up in intensity, it makes up for in all-around drinkability, as this balanced-on-the-lighter-side hazy IPA offers slightly sweet fruit-forward comfort without the heft of others in the category. Subtle peach and apricot aromas and flavors with a hint of tropical lychee and kiwi for depth.
