What the brewers say

“Mosaic and Vic Secret-hopped double India pale ale. Tropical, citrus, and pine flavors.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Soft tropical fruit with a pleasant underlying tartness and hints of grassy bitterness. Fresh grapefruit juice, orange, lemon, lime, and peach plus berries, mango, and oats.”

Flavor: “Lush tropical-fruit character—grapefruit and mango paired with a rich, chewy body that doesn’t come across overly sweet, but still balances the hops character well. Bitter finish without being overwhelming. Lingering hints of grapefruit rind and ripe mango, with a soft mineral character. A bit of both worlds.”

Overall: “Tasty as hell. A great rich and complex hazy IPA.”
