What the brewers say

“Juicy, tropical, and unfiltered IPA … Azacca and Chinook hops.”

What our panel thought

“Apples and cherries on the nose, a little bit of light tobacco. Sweet citrus and guava dominate the flavor, supported by malt balanced with honeyed, caramel sweetness that lingers into the finish and plays off the lasting bitterness. But it feels like we’re on the back side of the movie screen, attempting to decipher what is playing on the front.”

What our editors thought

“Murky fruit cocktail in the nose. The flavor breaks stride with a minty anise bitterness in the sip that pushes just a hair too far.”
