What the brewer says

“New Age dou­ble IPA that’s heav­ily im­pacted by the bright peach and stone­fruit notes im­parted by an ex­pres­sive yeast strain. Sim­ple dry hop con­sist­ing mostly of Ci­tra and a small por­tion of Aza­cca, re­sult­ing in a cit­rusy/trop­i­cal mélange of hops aroma and fla­vor; pas­sion fruit, tan­ger­ine, pineap­ple, white wine-es­que grape char­ac­ter. Al­co­hol is sub­dued, mouth­feel is full and soft. Light bit­ter­ness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Huge lemony cit­rus aroma with a medium al­co­hol. It’s fol­lowed by more Amer­i­can hops va­ri­eties of le­mon and pine; a slight sour-candy note tick­les the senses. No malt aroma.” Fla­vor: “Fruity Peb­bles com­bi­na­tion of fla­vors. Trop­i­cal-fruit notes of mango, pa­paya, co­conut, and vanilla. Over­all, a pretty juicy fla­vor profile. As it warms, the al­co­hol be­comes more no­tice­able. Medium creami­ness. Very clean. The min­i­mal bit­ter­ness is just enough to en­hance drink­a­bil­ity.” Over­all: “What NEIPAS strive to be— bright, freshly squeezed or­ange juice. Light mouth­feel. Ex­pertly crafted.”
