The aroma of hops is slightly sweet with a tropical fruit scent.

Flavor

The palate showcases more bite. Taste begins with a flash of biscuit malt before abruptly shifting to grassy and herbal hop flavors. Finishes dry and bitter with grapefruit. Malt asserts itself as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth and chewy with a medium body and less-than-moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly.

Overall

The Wayfarer IPA is so easy to drink. Sure, the ale tastes quite bitter at first but the palate attains greater balance as the beer warms. That being said, there’s more than enough bite for the hopheads and others will appreciate that backbone.
