Outer Range Pillow Stacks

What the brewers say

“100 percent Mosaic IPA.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Grassy and herbal with some citrus (orange peel and grapefruit) and spicy notes of mint, pepper, and earthy beneath. Some green onion and maybe a touch of garlic. Some peach on retronasal.”

Flavor: “Highly bitter, but enough residual sweetness to make it balanced for the style. The orange highlights dance on top of the somewhat grassy and green-onion notes with the blend of herbal tones pulling things together. Malt is a secondary thought. Finish isn’t overly bitter with a slight sweetness on the very end.”

Overall: “Great hops complexity. If you want to visit the lower latitudes, this is the beer for you. It will give you that tropical fruit–market experience in your mouth. Maybe not for everyone, but pretty intriguing.”
