Breckenridge Brewery Snow Glare

What the brewers say

“Grounded by malted wheat, Snow Glare’s medley of Mosaic, Centennial, and Palisade hops bring tropical and floral aromas and a crisp finish.”

What our panel thought

“Strong citrus and pine hops character with a clean, refreshing backing sweetness. American hops dominate from start to finish, with a resinous orange character along with a straightforward dry wheat-malt spiciness. The finish is bitter, dry, and crisp. Think classic American wheat with the hops aromatics dialed up a bit. Really nice.”

What our editors thought

“Hops push a deliciously deceiving citrus nose, but the flavor makes their contribution more apparent with a firm but palatable bitterness that sets this hoppy wheat apart. It’s not a full-on IPA, but what appear to be late-addition and cold-side hops turn this run-of-the-mill wheat into something more interesting to today’s hops fans.”
