What the brewers say

“Burst through the clouds on this intensely juicy DIPA brewed with oats and excessive amounts of Simcoe, El Dorado, and Vic Secret.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruit salad up front with pineapple, pear, peach, and mango. A nice touch of dankness keeps it from getting too much into the produce section.”

Flavor: “A healthy balance of tropical fruit juice (orange and pineapple), dank dispensary character, and a healthy amount of bitterness (a characteristic sometimes lacking in New England IPAs). A pleasant amount of soft malt sweetness rounds everything out, but the bitterness carries through, just to remind you, that despite the haze, this is still an IPA first and foremost.”

Overall: “An excellent marriage of between those overly juicy New England IPAs and those overly bitter West Coast IPAs. This beer finds a wonderful balance in highlighting hops flavors with touch of soft malt sweetness and assertive hops bitterness.”
