In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Green Bench Brewing Co. Sunshine City IPA

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.”
