Green Bench Brewing Co. Sunshine City IPA

What the brewers say

“In celebration of our beautifully sunny city, this IPA was designed to be as bright as the warmest summer day. Packed with hops flavor and aroma, we double dry hop this beer with equal parts of Mosaic, Citra and Azacca, for an intensely tropical profile reminiscent of tangerine, nectar, papaya, peach, kiwi, and pineapple.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light orange and lemon with a touch of vanilla sweetness, bordering on orange creamsicle. Some earthy dank and a little floral spice. Some nice citrus and tropical fruit notes.”

Flavor: “Nice blend of hops sweetness. Some tropical fruit with some melon and mango. Some orange and grapefruit, a little lemon, and slight pine. Bitterness is in line and balances well with the malt and finishes not too bitter, not too sweet. A bit of alcohol is evident with some warmth.”

Overall: “Fairly big beer with a lot going on. Complex aroma with tropical, citrus, and grassy elements. Sweetness and bitterness are at nice levels. Very drinkable despite its strength.”
