Poured from a tall boy can. Hazy, amber gold coloration, the head reaches nearly two fingers with a ton of soapy ringed lacing stuck to the glass following average retention. Really great looking.
The malt base is very doughy and features some waffle batter adding some sweetness to the hop aroma. Tropical passion fruit and a dusty and grassy underlay are prominent in the hops with notes of orange citrus, pine and fruity esters.
Bready with honey and cake batter sweetness. Balanced IPA with pine and citrus pith that cuts through with quite a high amount of bitterness but not so much flavor. The citrus pith acidity carries into the finish accentuating a sharp and drying bitter kick.
Medium bodied with only a brief window showing the booze. Average carbonation. The bitterness is sharp and building during the drink and has a god drying effect.
This tiger has claws, attractive beer with a large perceived bitterness and bite during the drink. I wish the nose had more to it, the passion fruit is nice and unique. Hop flavor really needs to be ramped up as well.
