Cerebral Brewing Scam Likely
What the brewers say
Single-hop DIPA brewed with Golden Promise and oats. Hopped with 2018 Galaxy.
What our panel thought
Aroma is surprisingly dank and earthy with hints of onion, garlic, and green pepper complemented by subtle pine and citrus notes. The flavor is shockingly both in line with and at odds with its aroma. The same dank, earthy, and piney notes are present, but they are balanced with equal and complementary notes of coconut, orange peel, tangerine, and peach. The softness of the mouthfeel complements the bitterness, and the alco-holic warmth is restrained.
What our editors thought
Kiwi and lemongrass on the nose. On the sip, a bright and drying bitterness quickly gives way to a spicy tam-arind note.
