Old Thunder Brewing Wandering the Vineyard

What the brewers say

“An IPA hopped with New Zealand-grown Nelson Sauvin and Riwaka, and then conditioned on white grapes.”

What our panel thought

“The nose brings an interesting blend of earthy, vegetal elements and bright citrus characteristics. The flavor leans hard into the vegetal notes with a subtle nondescript fruity sweetness emerging out of the clutter. The softness of the mouthfeel helps to balance the flavor complexity and dampens the bitterness.”

What our editors thought

“Assertive gooseberry in the aroma, with fresh NZ hops definition in the sip and just a touch of white grape in the finish.”
