Green Cheek Beer Swim Test
What the brewers say
"Milky yellowy/white in color, with flavorful hoppy layers of pineapple, lychee, and nectarine."
What our panel thought
"Ripe orange, lemon, grapefruit, and intense dankness melding with alcohol for a complex aroma with spicy, pepper-like kick. Chewy sweetness tempers the bitterness, drying out enough to avoid cloying."
What our editors thought
"Sweaty citrus and tropical funk—unresolved tension between glorious and weird. In the sip, tropical sweetness morphs into dry-pineapple bitterness with David Blaine–like precision. Finishes dry, its sweetness ghostly. Drinkable and satisfying. A masterwork of balance."
