Bale Breaker Top Cutter
What the brewers say
"This beer was brewed in collaboration with Sacramento’s chapter of the Pink Boots Society, a non profit charity supporting the women in the craft beer industry. We decided to take the custom blend of hops designed for this beer by YCH Hops and make a 6.5% Hazy IPA but with the level of dry hops meant for a Double IPA."
What our panel thought
Aroma: "Pleasant citrus notes, orange with a touch of grapefruit. Light floral notes. Faint strawberry ester."
Flavor: "Moderate bitterness upfront with pine and light dankness. Bitterness extends throughout the sip into the aftertaste. Earthy and spicy hop flavors throughout. Dryness helps push the bitterness with only a touch malt in the middle of the sip."
Overall: "Dry, bitter, earthy example of style with a moderate bitterness throughout the sip. Earthy, spicy hop flavor with a very light malt sweetness only as an underlining note."
