What the brewer says

“Nu Skool IPA is an ap­proach­able, well-bal­anced IPA with slight malty sweet­ness that’s brim­ming with trop­i­cal, fruity, spicy, piney, and cit­rus char­ac­ter. This beer show­cases just how far we’ve come with al­lur­ing aro­mas and ex­plo­sive fla­vors us­ing only new Amer­i­can and ex­per­i­men­tal hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Ripe grape­fruit, wet moss, pine, light or­ange pith evenly bal­anced with a clean malty sweet­ness. Clas­sic West Coast IPA aroma.” Fla­vor: “Medium hops bit­ter­ness. Very crush­able. Clean malt, bal­anced hops, resin, pine, light sweet­ness. Fin­ishes nice and dry. The crisp mouth­feel makes it very drink­able.” Over­all: “A well-bal­anced and easy­drink­ing Amer­i­can IPA. Hops fla­vor and aroma are bal­anced and well-pro­nounced, re­fresh­ing, and linger well into fin­ish. Bal­ance with malt is good. One judge said, ‘I want to drink this watch­ing my kids play­ing soc­cer and heck­ling the other team’s kids.’ ”
