After a pretty disappointing seasonal flight at Town Hall last weekend, I opened this growler in hopes that this IPA would live up to my memories of it (5 yrs ago or so). Happily it was just what I remembered - very fragrant with a fine balance between malt and fresh hops flavors. Hints of grapefruit, pine and maybe bubblegum? Medium-thick body with smooth mouthfeel. This does seem more in line with an English-style IPA in my opinion - a bit sweeter up front, providing a good counterweight to the bitter yet fresh finish. One might argue that it lacks subtlety but the Masala Mama is a crowd pleaser with good reason.

Pours a hazy, amber with a thick cream colored head. Grapefruit, pine, brown sugar, and floral hops on the nose. Pine resin, malt, and citrus zest on the palate with a hint of sour apple. Bitter. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Overall a bold IPA from Minnesota.
