What the brewers say

“Brewed and dry hopped with Simcoe, El Dorado, Strata.”

What our panel thought

“Fun aroma that hits some more classic C-hop notes—pine, kind bud, grapefruit—given a lift by sweeter candied fruits. On the palate, the malt sweetness draws out ethereal orange-juice qualities that dissipate into a dry, slightly resinous finish. It’s brusque, but the memory of that juicy hit is enough to send you back for another.”

What our editors thought

“Papaya-habañero nose hints at a peppery spice with an earthy fruit base. Prickly carb and bitterness push the pepper note on the sip before settling into a gentler finish.”
