Archetype Brewing Shoulder Devil
What the brewers say
Strong peach and apricot notes with nuances of berries, cantaloupe, and citrus. Mild malt backbone balances and complements the hops presence for a full-bodied, bold IPA.
What our panel thought
Very restrained aroma, hints of toast and light citrus. Citrus and pine hops flavors with a pleasant, clean, and aggressive bitterness on the finish. Great balance, lingering toast and resinous bitterness. Bold bright flavors with great balance throughout. A down-to-earth classic DIPA.
What our editors thought
A crisp clean nose hints at red peach and cantaloupe while a medium bitterness in the sip feels properly in place and substantial in weight as it nicely balances the fruit, ethanol, and malt sweetness.
