Hop Butcher for the World Ocean Key
What the brewers say
"Citra- and Motueka-hopped milkshake double IPA brewed with pineapple, key lime, and vanilla."
What our panel thought
"Vibrant, tart fruit throughout, with soft vanilla edges. Rich, sweet, and fruity: pineapple sweetness pared down by key-lime acidity—interesting ester profile. Chewy without cloy. Lingering fruit-and-hops complexity. Okay, beer hipsters: You win."
What our editors thought
"Quirky citrus-pineapple nose; vanilla and wood soften the intense fruit. On the sip, sweetness pushes thoroughly into dessert territory, buffered only by touches of fruit-acidity and herbal bitterness. Polarizing. Complex, interesting, very sweet."
