What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate dank notes, with light lemongrass, citrus, light and dark stone fruit, lemon, orange, strawberry, and cherry. A delicate sweetness emerges as it warms, along with a moderate dank note.”

Flavor: “A blend of light malt sweetness, bright hops juiciness, and perfect bitterness to keep it in balance. Hops flavors are intense and complex, with mandarin oranges, peaches, and melon. The malt, though a touch sweet, is layered with a touch of biscuit and bread, and a creamy body. Strong esters, and a slight minerality that accentuates some bitterness. Dank notes are in the background, and the finish is bitter with hops flavors and long lasting.”

Overall: “Bigger bitterness than expected for the style, with a big creamy body and a touch of sweetness toward the end. Nice fruity complexity on the aroma that is deceptive when it comes to the wonderful flavors that follow. A great beer that uses the hops and malt quite nicely.”
