What the brewers say

“Our flagship—a brightly dank ale that threads many needles. Hops: Falconer’s Flight, Centennial, Apollo, Summit, Chinook. Malts: 2-row, flaked wheat, flaked oats, flaked barley.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A fresh hops, pine, and grassy character, with some juiciness as well. Fruity notes of orange juice, lemon, pineapple, mango, and lime show through, and a bit of light breadiness.”

Flavor: “A great fruit complexity, featuring orange, pineapple, grapefruit, citrus, mango, lime, and melon. Moderate bitterness from the hops, with some pine, a little spice, and lemongrass. Very smooth, creamy body and mild carbonation. The finish is bitter and long-lasting.”

Overall: “This beer comes together great, with lots of fruit and hops complexity that blend and fit together well. The light sweetness blends well with the moderate bitterness from the hops, and a touch more carbonation would be nice.”
