What the brewers say

“West Coast IPA brewed with Colorado Malting Company malt and hopped with Idaho 7, Citra, and Colorado-grown Cascade hops.”

What our panel thought

“Moderate diesel-and-resin hop aroma, with light tropical hints and a bit of bready malt. Golden and bright, with a head that retains well—great body and carbonation. In the mouth, the hops shift more into resinous pine, paired with a smooth, round, and slowly building bitterness, while the malt evokes biscuit and pie crust. The aroma carries through to the flavor, with rounded garlic and diesel, resin, light pineapple, and mango hop flavors, buoyed by a moderate malt sweetness that keeps things in balance. Finishes mostly dry, hops in sync with malt and bitterness, as they carry into the aftertaste and fade off at just the right time. Very pleasant.”

What our editors thought

“Crisp and modern, with a clean malt structure and bright, bitter tropical-fruit notes—it’s precise and uncomplicated with a fine polish. Spicy-herbal mango notes in the nose offer a toothy but defined edge, and a strong but very smooth tropically tinged bitterness provides the perfect balance without going overboard.”
