What the brewers say

“Golden IPA made with five different hops. Intense grapefruit and dank notes with a crisp finish. Bronze medal at the 2014 GABF. Dank, tropical, orange.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big tropical fruit and citrus. Papaya, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon. A bit floral and herbal. Bready malt in the background. A nice refreshing sweetness.”

Flavor: “Earthy hops flavor (rosemary with a bit of sage) hits first, but then a dollop of tropical/citrus comes in and takes over with rich tropical fruit (especially papaya), tangerine, some grapefruit, and lemon. Between the citrus and the esters, this is very fruity. A moderate sweetness hits up front, and the hops bitterness balances out the sweetness through the taste. Moderate-to-full chewy body.”

Overall: “Citrus, citrus, citrus. Very drinkable and interesting tropical and citrus fruity hops aroma. Refreshing.”
