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


Hop Butcher for the World Telehopic

Aroma: “Very faint for the style. Restrained orange and pale malt. Subtle mango, pineapple, and passion fruit in the background. Really light pine and maybe a touch of garlic.”

Flavor: “Tropical fruit throughout, especially pineapple and fruit punch, with some more subtle orange and a touch of peach/apricot. Moderate-to-high sweetness with high bitterness to offset. Fairly boozy with alcohol warmth. Tastes like a restrained West Coast IPA. The chewy body is there, but the juice-forward flavors take a backseat. Sweet for the style, but not cloying. Finishes with a touch of lingering bitterness.”

Overall: “Aside from the relatively high residual sweetness, this beer is really likeable. The tropical fruit complexity is a fun take on the style. It’s more of a tropical cocktail than what I would call ‘juicy,’ but tasty nonetheless.”
