What the brewers say
“A seemingly magical reaction between a specialized yeast strain, oats, wheat, and an experimental hops variety results in a blossom of rich, tropical fruit flavor that is a feast for the eyes, with a silky-smooth texture and clean finish.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Juicy and catty. The hops aroma leans more to the dank side than the fresh fruit side, but there’s some orange and mango juice.”
Flavor: “Big hops leans toward some of the harsher dank/resinous qualities, but the overall impression is still balanced. Pushes past the citrus and into a floral—almost Easter lily or iris—sulfur thing. The finish is chewy and lingers wonderfully with a mix of bitter and fruity notes.
Overall: “Straddles the line of traditional American IPA and the newfangled hazy variants, but the aggressive qualities come together really nicely and complement the fruitier aspects of the beer.”
