Stoudts Queen of Hops Brut IPA

What the brewers say

Brewed using Pilsner and pale-ale malts and flaked rice for added dryness. Then dry hopped with loads of Citra, Amarillo, and Azacca for a pungent yet crisp flavor!

What our panel thought

High carbonation and wine-like nose with an aggressive resinous hops profile. The dry finish and high bitter-ness, with spice, onion, and tar hops notes combine for a bracing edge on the swallow. None of the light, fruity, tropical notes. More of an old-school West Coast IPA.

What our editors thought

Brut goes Belgian as the phenolic yeast ester evokes a distinctly saison note. A touch of yeasty bitterness hits quickly on the sip and overwhelms any more delicate hops notes.
