Night Shift Brewing, Inc Whirlpool
What the brewers say
Explosively juicy. Refreshingly light. Big notes of grapefruit and clementine. Generously dry hopped with Mosaic and Ella.
What our panel thought
Big, woody pine in the nose. Well-balanced flavor is piney, juicy, citrusy, and bitter, with some dankness as it warms. Just enough malt to hold it together. Nice throwback combo of piney and citrus hops. Excellent. Enjoyed this one immensely.
What our editors thought
Aroma of tangerine, lemon, baked fennel-onion tart. The sip is incredibly light, its bitter edge more West Coast than New England. That light body accentuates earthier, more herbal hops at the expense of citrus, but it also makes the next sip easier.
