Comrade Brewing Superpower IPA

What the brewers say

“American IPA with loads of Pacific Northwest hops. Huge pine and grapefruit hops aroma, with flavors of citrus, balanced bitterness with a light malt character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big pine and lemon aromas dominate. Some herbal and floral notes beneath with hints of orange, grapefruit, and some tropical fruit. Nice bready malt, verging on Pilsner malt.”

Flavor: “Orange and tangerine dominate the palate with notes of grapefruit, some lemon, and a little tropical fruit (mango and pineapple). The hops come through from the start to the finish of the sip. Nice balancing malt. Some nice bitterness in the finish helps cut the sweetness. Balance is pushing IIPA, but in a massively drinkable way.”

Overall: “Crazy drinkable with lots of hops complexity. Pushing the lower end of IIPA, but tasty with good hops character. The balance and malt bill highlight the fruit. The sweetness and bitterness are nice, with the bitterness lingering a bit into the finish.”
