What the brewers say

“Watermelon candy, Asian pear, resin, nutty malt.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bright blend of lemon, grapefruit, orange, mango, lychee, and floral notes with a touch of earth, mineral, must, and pine in the hops bitterness. A slight fresh-squeezed orange juice back end with just a hint of malt sweetness. Just a touch of pepperiness emerges after the initial sip.”

Flavor: “Balanced like an Orange Julius—fruity and sweet throughout, with bitterness to balance, and a bit of tartness mid-palate. Resinous and spicy piney hops characters add just enough bite to help temper the light malt bread-crust sweetness but don’t linger too long. Good carbonation makes the right parts of the beer pop. Finishes slightly dry and bitter, with notes of mango and tropical fruit.”

Overall: “An excellent beer that was fun to parse out. More floral than fruity, with a medium bitterness that is well-balanced. The body is a bit assertive given the floral flavors, but the contrasting hops flavors work well together and only serve to heighten both the citrus and pine flavors. A very fun beer to drink!”
