  • A: 8.6 | T: 9.2 | L: 8.0 | M: 9.0 | O: 9.0
  • Color: Straw
  • A: Light golden straw, hazy without floaters, soft white foam that's semi-thick.
    S: Mango and peach. Aroma is all fresh fruit and really clean.
    T: All pineapple, mango, and peach. But the sweetness has a really light touch, which I thinks really makes this beer standout among other hazy brews which can veer too sweet. Moderately substantial mouthfeel. Low bitterness that is appropriate to the style.
    O: Super balanced, avoids the over the top flavor mistakes that some hazy beers fall into. I think the full flavor tropical fruitiness comes from new and un-typical hops. Very easy drinker, but not at the sacrifice of flavor. FW is a solid brewery and this brew delivers on that rep.

Beer Notes
  • Visually hazy, creamy mouthfeel, tropical hop character. Brewer says, "moved away from classic piney-grapefruit to ore tropical and soft fruit flavor." & "hazy IPA's smell like raw hops, but this reminds me of a weizen-bock."
