How we review

What the brewers say

“A balanced, soft, and juicy IPA. Ripe passion fruit and citrus hops aroma lead to a full, fruit-forward hops flavor that washes over the palate, ending with subtle bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of lemon and pine with a hint of floral notes and a touch of black pepper. Very fruity aroma with hints of strawberries, peaches, and pears plus aromas of peanut butter and bread yeast. Floral, dank, resiny hops character and a hint of tangerine.”

Flavor: “Balanced (for an IPA), with a hint of residual sweetness. Rich hops avor (resin, pine, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit) matched with a pleasant bitterness and proper malt background. Low IBUs are not as palate-cleansing as some other IPAs, but let the fruity hops notes shine.”

Overall: “Something a bit different... a touch of crystal malt adds biscuity sweetness and complexity. Hops throw alternating layers of lemony and floral flavors. An excellent, complex modern take on the American IPA style with a well-constructed malt bill that brings out the best in the hops. Very well executed and worth seeking out.”
