What the brewers say

“Malt-forward but balanced. Biscuit malt flavors and fruity hop notes.”

What our panel thought

“Slightly malty in the nose, with floral and pine notes. Spicy hop flavors lead into subdued malt flavors. Caramel component moves pleasantly into the background, letting stone-fruit and pine elements move forward. Light on the tongue, soft into the finish.”

What our editors thought

“A baked apricot-tart note in the aroma marks the intersection of malt, hops, and fermentation esters. Simpler in the flavor, as the cooler malt notes play against classic orange-and-forest hops.”
