What the brewers say

“An unfiltered New England DIPA that uses generous amounts of Hallertauer Blanc, Citra, Mandarina Bavaria hops, resulting in notes of grapefruit, pine, lychee, orange, and tangerine against a soft malt backdrop.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bright tropical flavors, mango, papaya, pineapple, and passion fruit. Light malt sweetness that just enhances the intense fruitiness. Interesting notes of pine and onion mixed with light floral notes. Very intriguing.”

Flavor: “The intense fruitiness from the aroma continues into the flavor. If the color weren’t golden straw, I might be convinced I was drinking Hawaiian Punch. Just a slight amount of bitterness on the back end provides a nod to the base style ‘IPA,’ but the hops flavor is the star. For as fresh as the hops flavors are, there is little hops bite or yeasty burn common in rushed versions of this style.”

Overall: A beautifully intense juicy hops-forward beer that captures the style expertly without falling prey to some of the pitfalls of the style. Very drinkable.”
