What the brewers say

“Aggressively dry hopped to showcase fresh hops flavors and aromas. Begins with slight malt flavor with a subtle sweetness. Hops character pounces with citrus and pine notes. Finishes dry with an infusion of sweet hoppiness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Huge tangerine raw hops aroma, with notes of resin, grainy malt, and low stone fruit fermentation aromatics. Very strong hops aroma—piney, resinous, citrus rind, slightly grassy. Light clean pale malt aromas.”

Flavor: “Perfectly balanced malt and bitterness. The raw hops flavors are a bit over the top but fun. Low caramel notes in the finish keep it interesting and refreshing. Heavy hops flavor, again very resinous, with that fresh-hops-just-dropped-into-the-boil smell. Finishes clean with a very slight lingering bitterness.”

Overall: “Not sure I could drink very much of it—hops character seems overly raw and a bit astringent in the finish. It’s a fun beer with no process flaws and a nice recipe—a bit like chewing on hops cones, but I like the hops flavor in the finish. Beer is clean and well balanced for an APA, but a slightly higher carbonation level would accentuate the hoppiness and clean up the finish.”
