In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Alvarado Street Riot Punch

Aroma: “Huge lemony citrus aroma with a medium alcohol. It’s followed by more American hops varieties of lemon and pine; a slight sour-candy note tickles the senses. No malt aroma.”

Flavor: “Fruity Pebbles combination of flavors. Tropical-fruit notes of mango, papaya, coconut, and vanilla. Overall, a pretty juicy flavor profile. As it warms, the alcohol becomes more noticeable. Medium creaminess. Very clean. The minimal bitterness is just enough to enhance drinkability.”

Overall: “What NEIPAs strive to be—bright, freshly squeezed orange juice. Light mouthfeel. Expertly crafted.”
