North Carolina’s largest “native” brewer recently dropped a new permanent addition to its lineup, a hazy brewed with Citra, Mosaic, and Galaxy hops. Strictly available in cans.
It sure smells the part on the nose: Pour it heavily into a glass and a brisk, sweet pineapple note immediately invades the senses, undercut by just a touch of earthy hops. That changes quickly on the palate, though: The tropical notes are subdued by the bitter hops, giving the palate a bold, almost forest-floor character. Eventually it opens back up: A bit floral on the back end, I get odd notes of hibiscus in the finish.
