What the brewers say

“Fruited IPA brewed with Citra, Galaxy, Idaho 7 hops, then treated with passion fruit, mango, orange to accentuate the hops!”

What our panel thought

“Aromatics are insubstantial both from an IPA and a fruit perspective, but the flavor is a completely different character—grips of fruit that come together in a zippy, fresh, and incredibly interesting execution. Muted fruity citrus notes emerge out of an otherwise dank and earthy aroma, but the flavor immediately makes a pleasant left turn and leans hard into fruity tropical sweetness with a balancing bitterness to hold it all together. The beer doesn’t forget its roots, still grounded with bitterness through a citrusy hop-forward flavor. Citrus, peach, and strawberry blend with pine and earthy notes to create a fun and balanced flavor that is wildly discordant with the aroma. A tale of two experiences.”

What our editors thought

“Strawberry and passion fruit in the aroma, subtle but present. Shockingly intense citrus and fleshy tropical fruit notes jump out of the flavor in sharp contrast to the subtle nose. Cool, smooth tropical pith bitterness cuts a firm line into the finish.”
