Offshoot Beer (The Bruery) Unwind (You Earned This Hoppy Pils)

What the brewers say

Decompress and take it easy with Unwind, a casually-crushable hoppy pilsner brewed with Citra, Simcoe, Nelson Sauvin, and Sterling hops.

What our panel thought

Fresh, piney grapefruit nose, with a little honey-malt underneath. In the flavor, a burst of crystal malt sweetness with good grapefruit-citrus hops. Well balanced sweetness and hop-bitterness. Crisp, clean brightness showcases the hops. Doesn't try too hard. Smoothed out; no raw IPA edges.

What our editors thought

West Coast IPA classicism meets lager tradition. Citrus-pine nose gives way to a soft body that nonetheless maintains a mild crisp edge. Light on bitterness, but other flavors are suitably in balance.
