4 Noses Single Hopped Citra Whimsy
What the brewers say
Grapefruit, melon, and gooseberry flavors from the Citra hops shine through from first sniff to last sip. Fluffier body and a mild malt profile perfectly balance this NEIPA.
What our panel thought
The nose offers up pineapple and orange zest along with some pleasant spicy notes. The spicy hops step forward in the flavor, adding a nice touch. Nice backing malt. Bitterness is a little more pronounced than in some hazy IPAs, but it folds in nicely with the citrus flavor and soft finish.
What our editors thought
A wide, round, buttery chardonnay nose with hints of honeydew and pineapple leads to a similarly round sip with similar fruity notes and just a quick hit of bitterness as it finishes.
