Ecliptic Brewing Starburst IPA
What the brewers say
"Brewed with Amarillo, Azacca, Centennial, Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops."
What our panel thought
"Enticing, sweet, bright nose: lemon peel, lemon drop candy, orange, grapefruit, light malt. Tastes sweet up front—nicely balanced bready malt drawing out orange-grapefruit—rolling into firm bitterness, getting slightly rough in the finish and lingering. Low alcoholic heat as it warms. Want the hop flavors to sing louder."
What our editors thought
"White grape, kiwi, light pineapple nose, crisply defined. Soft tropical bitterness drives the sip, rounded, not overbearing, finishing quickly to let a bit of light malt shine."
