What the brewer says

“Like cut­ting into a fresh can­taloupe... if it were filled with a met­ric sh*t-ton of ripe, fra­grant hops soaked in pineap­ple juice. Ripe ‘N Juicy gains its sig­na­ture dense, hazy body from the re­ac­tion of a spe­cial­ized yeast strain with a hearty dose of flaked wheat. A mas­sive can­vas for a bril­liantly fruity hops ex­pe­ri­ence.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong le­mon and white grape­fruit. Sage, rose­mary, lemon­grass, mint, blue­berry, pear, apri­cot, and dank pine.” Fla­vor: “A wel­com­ing earthy dank­ness with the juice of cit­rus (le­mon, grape­fruit) and trop­i­cal fruits (guava). Some peach. Fla­vors seem to com­ple­ment each other to give an over­all pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence.” Over­all: “Bal­anced fla­vors and aro­mas that sup­port and co­op­er­ate with each other well. A re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”
