What the brewers say

“A double dry-hopped New England–style double IPA brewed in collaboration with 18th Street Brewery. Hazy, juicy, and popping with fruit and citrus notes from El Dorado and Simcoe hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant fruit character, with notes of a mango, pineapple, peach, and strawberry with a touch of chalky candy sweetness similar to Smarties. Some subtle sweet bready malt notes.”

Flavor: “Big fruit cocktail: tangerine, lemon, cherry, banana, peach, pineapple, mango. It’s hard to separate the hops from the fermentation esters. Some spicy black pepper notes. A light touch of alcohol warming toward the end of the sip. Smooth bitterness. Medium sweetness.”

Overall: “I really like the fermentation character along with the wild hops flavor. The peppery notes are especially nice. Very little bitterness and moderate fruity juice of orange, mango, and peach. Heavy body with light carbonation and light alcohol warming in the end.”
