Migration Straight Outta Portland
What the brewers say
Bright West Coast IPA that jumps off the glass with big tropical juicy aromatics and crisp finish.
What our panel thought
Medium strong hops aromas, grassy, herbal, with a light berry note. Malt aroma lightly toasted, supportive. Hops bitterness firm, clean, and crisp. Malt flavor lightly caramel and toasted. Plenty of hops, but the firm malt body carries the day, providing a broad canvas that carries all the way through the flavor. The semisweet malt lingers long into the aftertaste.
What our editors thought
Crisp peach and fennel notes on the nose offer a curious expression that avoids one-note clichés. The sip is similarly clean and direct, with an immediate medium bitter note that fades into lingering peach and peach-skin notes.
