What the brewer says

“Berry-piney hops and light malts; toes the line be­tween IPA and pale ale.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Resinous and piney with lemon sup­port­ing. Clean malt bill. Nice or­ange and cle­men­tine. Very sub­dued aroma over­all.” Fla­vor: “West Coast hops to boot, show­cas­ing the piney, resinous char­ac­ter with a touch of light cit­rus. Light bready malt sweet­ness pairs well with the softly or­ange, lemon, and resinous hops char­ac­ter. Fin­ish is very clean, with a pleas­ant lin­ger­ing bit­ter­ness and pine, lemon hops notes.” Over­all: “Nice flow of slightly sweet cit­rus into the strong hops bit­ter­ness. The aroma is a lit­tle unas­sum­ing, but there’s re­ally nice hops com­plex­ity that lingers with the dry, bit­ter fin­ish. The malt pro­file isn’t par­tic­u­larly com­plex, but it has enough un­der­ly­ing bready sweet­ness to bal­ance the bit­ter­ness. Clean and well-done, while de­cep­tively sim­ple—it’s hard to make a beer taste this ef­fort­less. Dry, crisp, very well­bal­anced.”
