New Anthem Brewing Songs Unsung
What the brewers say
Pithy tropical grapefruit. Pale malt, oats. Galaxy and Citra.
What our panel thought
The appearance of this beer begs the name to have the word ‘cloud’ in it. Deep golden haze with a billowy head. Wonderful nose with a blend of citrus and tropical fruits. Compelling flavor profile filled with a blend of orange, peach, pineapple, and guava. Soft pillowy body with a more assertive finish that brings some bitterness to the table to scrub the palate for another sip. Slight hops burn. Pretty awesome beer for which we would gladly regularly reserve a spot in our fridge.
What our editors thought
A vividly intense grapefruit-meets-kiwi nose jumps out of the glass with a rarely found confidence and intensity of hops flavor. The sip matches the bold character of the nose, with a hint of dank diesel and asphalt, giving shape to the strong fruit notes. It’s deftly balanced at maximum volume—a gorgeous achievement.
