What the brewers say

“New series with competing hops terriors. The first in this series features hops from the United States (Mosaic) and New Zealand (Nelson and Wai-iti). Melon bomb, light and fruity.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Orange juice and zest dominate the aroma with other citrus notes poking out occasionally. Some more tropical fruits—mango, melon, and pineapple—on retronasal. Super inviting.”

Flavor: “Rich and chewy with a complex mélange of ripe fruit and a toasted-malt sweetness with hints of toffee. Finish has a bit of a harsh mineral character that detracts from the softer fruit character; it isn’t particularly bitter, but there is a lingering harshness that is a bit out of place.”

Overall: “Sort of a crossover IPA somewhere between Old School West Coast and softer NEIPA format.”
