What the brewers say

Not available.

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Medium malt, with a bready, caramel raisin, and slightly vegetal aroma, and some oxidation. A meaty, woody, dry grass aroma is balanced by medium notes of grapefruit, lemongrass, peaches, pears, sweet orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. Very fresh.”

Flavor: “Hops flavor is big, with grapefruit, pine, and earthy spiciness. A residual caramel essence lingers to finish with a great balance of sweet and bitter hops. Some light chocolate, orange, grapefruit, and toasty notes. Good carbonation.”

Overall: “Very sweet beer with some evident American hops characteristics. Interesting play of caramel, raisin, biscuit, and honey. A bit sweet from oxidation, and somewhat lingering bitterness.”
