What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big trop­i­cal fruit and citrus. Pa­paya, pineap­ple, tan­ger­ine, grape­fruit, le­mon. A bit flo­ral and herbal. Bready malt in the back­ground. A nice re­fresh­ing sweet­ness.” Fla­vor: “Earthy hops fla­vor (rose­mary with a bit of sage) hits first, but then a dol­lop of trop­i­cal/citrus comes in and takes over with rich trop­i­cal fruit (es­pe­cially pa­paya), tan­ger­ine, some grape­fruit, and le­mon. Be­tween the citrus and the es­ters, this is very fruity. A mod­er­ate sweet­ness hits up front, and the hops bit­ter­ness bal­ances out the sweet­ness through the taste. Mod­er­ate-to-full chewy body.” Over­all: “Citrus, citrus, citrus. Very drink­able and interesting trop­i­cal and citrus fruity hops aroma. Re­fresh­ing.”
