What the brewers say

“The Pupil is a smooth, medium-bodied, pleasantly dry IPA with forward aromas and flavor evocative of tropical fruit. Notes of guava and mango are most commonly detected in this gently bittered beer.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet and juicy with grapefruit, orange, and some lemon. A touch of herbal and floral and a bit of pine. Low malt that’s bready and toasty.”

Flavor: “A nice balance between sweet and bitter. Notes of orange, grapefruit, and some lemon hit up front with a juice-like character. There’s also an herbal and floral character. Malt sweetness of biscuit and a little caramel. Pine/resin hops, some grapefruit, toasted malt backing, and then the bitterness slides in, and grows and lingers into a medium finish.”

Overall: “Nice fruity notes. The citrus and hops character came through with good balance of bitterness and complexity.”
