What the brewers say

“A SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hops). Chalk-white head with a very clean malt backbone. The Mosaic hops impart strong grapefruit, pineapple, and blueberry flavor and aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Tropical fruit pushes forward with mango, pineapple, guava, and the like. Some “darker” tropical fruit notes as well, like lucuma and guava. A slight yeast ester character that competes with the hops character.”

Flavor: “The fruit salad continues into the flavor, though the focus is somewhat “darker” than is typical in these kinds of IPAs. Yes, there’s mango and pineapple, but also think guava and even tamarind. There’s a depth that is simultaneously surprising and refreshing. The orange character is much more prominent, but there’s still a sweetened lemon note in the background.”

Overall: “A citrus/mango beer with a very slight diacetyl issue, but a very pleasant beer with tropical fruits and just a hint of dank hops goodness. This is a nice change of pace in the bowl-of-fruit IPA aisle—a moodier IPA that is more like drinking the opening chords of Beethoven’s Ninth than radio-friendly pop.”
