Standard Brewing OK Fine
What the brewers say
OK fine, here’s your NEIPA. Azacca, Mosaic, El Dorado, Sabro, oats, wheat, etc.
What our panel thought
Decidedly citrus-forward aromas and flavors of orange peel, lemon, and tangerine with some earthy and piney aspects hiding the background. The soft mouthfeel accentuates the pleasant and sweeter hops notes for an approachability for the bitter-beer hater. The finish is bitter but not harsh or astringent and has a curious citrus tang to it.
What our editors thought
Guava and chardonnay complement the slightly woody coconut note on the nose, while the mid-sweet sip and soft low bitterness amplify the fruit notes. A tad sweet, but a refreshing approach that’s equal parts unique and comforting.
