Return to List

Canned in tall boys, this version of the brewery's Powder Dreams, the third installment, is certainly bold and hoppy. A hazy orange-amber color, it leads with upfront aromas of ripe tropical fruit, melon rind and dried grapefruit, with a subtle herbaceous quality in the background. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, with ample carbonation and pleasant bitterness to counter the weight through the finish. Fruity flavors of pineapple, nectarine and grapefruit set the stage, with complex hits of oversteeped white tea and fresh grass lending interest and an astringent texture through the close.
