What the brewer says

“Mo­saic and Vic Se­cret-hopped dou­ble In­dia pale ale. Trop­i­cal, cit­rus, and pine fla­vors.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Soft trop­i­cal fruit with a pleas­ant un­der­ly­ing tart­ness and hints of grassy bit­ter­ness. Fresh grape­fruit juice, or­ange, le­mon, lime, and peach plus berries, mango, and oats.” Fla­vor: “Lush trop­i­cal-fruit char­ac­ter—grape­fruit and mango paired with a rich, chewy body that doesn’t come across overly sweet, but still bal­ances the hops char­ac­ter well. Bit­ter fin­ish with­out be­ing over­whelm­ing. Lin­ger­ing hints of grape­fruit rind and ripe mango, with a soft min­eral char­ac­ter. A bit of both worlds.” Over­all: “Tasty as hell. A great rich and com­plex hazy IPA.”
