Prison City Turf Wars

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.”
