Pontoon Brewing Wake Zone
What the brewers say
"Fluffy mouthfeel, fresh tangerine, soft melon and papaya notes with a firm pithy bitterness."
What our panel thought
"Aroma leans West Coast: orange, peach, light pineapple, dank earth, diesel, and pine. Low-medium bitterness nicely cuts the gentle sweetness on soft mouthfeel. Orange and pineapple give way to almost-overripe peach mid-palate. Malt seems to mute the finer points yet rounds the edges."
What our editors thought
"Spicy lemongrass nose plays its cards close. There’s an economy to the sip—unindulgent, only light residual sweetness—with fruity notes balanced immediately by a lingering rough bitterness."
