What the brewers say

“Booming. Tropical. Wizardy.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Subtle light stone fruit, orange, and lemon aromas with some floral and grassy notes. Soft bready malt character and hints of tartness. Massive rocky head.”

Flavor: “Nice light bready malt flavor in the start. Lemon and orange in the middle beneath a strong peach backbone. Malt is clean and supporting without being sweet. Finish is bitter but not aggressive. Very smooth and well balanced.”

Overall: “A really good ‘hazy’ IPA. Although it doesn’t have the lush tropical character of some examples, the more restrained and delicate overall impression is likeable. It’s well balanced, and everything comes together nicely. Refreshing and crushable, easy drinking.”
