What the brewers say

“The subtle malt backbone combats the bitterness and intensity of floral, grassy, and citrus hop flavors.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Floral hops, lemon zest, and light malt sweetness. Pears and peach syrup with hints of dank green and honey. Citrus aroma up front, with lemon, grapefruit, and clementine.”

Flavor: “Light body, medium citrusy hops profile, a little bit of mineral character in the finish. Pilsen malt, perhaps? Full sweet body with lots of candy-like hops and a good amount of hops bitterness to help balance the sweet body. Citrus and piney hops flavor with some malt sweetness and a slight mineral finish. Candy-like hops character with notes of tangerine.”

Overall: “A bit too light for the hops profile, almost too clean—tastes like an IPL. Pilsen malt character is fairly distinctive. A good beer that’s big and in your face with hops and malts alike. Very nice example—one of the more approachable, complex IPA examples and the only thing missing is that ‘wow’ factor of juicy hops character.”
