Castle Island Vern

What the brewers say

"A wheat IPA with Mosaic."

What our panel thought

"Aroma: tropical mango, pineapple, candied lemon peel, Sunkist soda pop, hints of coconut and curry. Smooth but complex flavor—bright caramel sweetness, good hop bitterness—going clean and fairly dry in the finish. Rounded, with a touch of lingering sweetness. Maybe a bit thin in the middle, but pleasant and easy to drink."

What our editors thought

"Soft, sweet tropical-pineapple nose. Hybridizing New England and West Coast, it doesn’t sacrifice much—big fruit notes, boldly expressed, despite the otherwise dry finish."
