“Like your fa­vorite sin­gle track, this IPA has it all! An in­sanely drink­able IPA, with enough malti­ness to bal­ance the in­cred­i­ble citrus aroma and hops fin­ish. You’ll be rac­ing back for an­other! 2014 World Beer Cham­pi­onship Sil­ver Medal.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Com­plex fruity hops: le­mon, or­ange, grape­fruit, peach, berry, trop­i­cal. Maybe a touch herbal and flo­ral, but mostly fruity. Nice fruity sweet­ness. A lit­tle bis­cuit and toast.” Fla­vor: “The hops char­ac­ter is citrus-for­ward (le­mon, or­ange, a bit of grape­fruit) with a touch of light stone fruit in the back­ground and a lit­tle mint. The hops come in with a fruity sweet­ness that car­ries through the taste. Sweet­ness and bit­ter­ness bal­ance, but the fin­ish is slightly sweet.” Over­all: “En­joy­able and re­fresh­ing. A nice show­case of hops and bal­ance be­tween sweet and bit­ter. Maybe a touch sweet for an IPA, but with a nice peach and citrus hops pro­file.”
