What the brewers say

“Our second DIPA, using Equinox, Citra, and Amarillo hops. This beer is a celebration of impermanence and embracing the beauty of the passing moment. Enjoy with friends and loved ones, being content and present when you do.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate grapefruit, orange, melon, tropical pineapple, and pine, with light dank and earthiness. Gooseberry and blackberry hops aromas, and a rich malt sweetness is present, but it’s not too sweet.”

Flavor: “Bright, juicy, fresh fruitiness, with moderate grapefruit and mango flavors. Just a hint of fruit sourness in there. There’s a blend of orange, pineapple, and grapefruit that meld with the spice, dank, and pine from the hops. The mouthfeel is pretty thick; the malt adds a little sweetness, yet the finish is somewhat dry.”

Overall: “More on the spicy and piney side than purely juicy, but it’s very flavorful. A thick, chewy body and a balanced medium hops bitterness extends into the finish. Nice showcase of the juicy hops notes, with a bigger body to help hold it up. Refreshing but potent.”
