What the brewers say

“Our unique house yeast strain provides quite the platform for Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo, and Centennial to shine! Vienna malt and a small dose of very light German crystal malt allow for a light, crisp malt backbone to lay low behind the ripe tropical fruit–hops profile.”

What our panel thought

_Aroma: _“This one has a big nose that is complex and a lot of fun. Dank, piney, and resinous, and maybe just a touch of red onion. Juicy with notes of orange, grapefruit, a little lemon, and some pear. A nice malt biscuit sweetness.”

Flavor: “Medium-high body and lingering bitterness carries the dank and piney hops profile throughout this one. Great balance, though maybe pushing the limits of a single IPA, even if West Coast. Lots of grapefruit and lemon. There is a sweetness from the fruit notes up front, but the bitterness cuts the sweetness and carries through the finish with a body to help support the big hops bitterness.”

Overall: “Classic West Coast IPA that might have taken a few steroids somewhere along the way. This one doesn’t mess around on anything except subtlety. Not an all-day kind of beer, but I would finish a pint of it and be happy because the esters and hop flavors play together well.”
