Review of this beer long overdue. This is a Mango Papaya Guava IPA with a nitro head.

A: First off, so much head for a light beer! Definitely threw me off at first, but in the best way possible. A nice dark pale/caramel color as well.

S: Less floral than I expected. Nice hoppy smell and faint notes of the fruit.

T: Great balance! Perfect blend of hoppy bitter IPA and malts with hints of tropical fruit. Yummm.

M: Amazing. Very smooth and easy to drink. The nitro makes it incredibly creamy, so unique for an IPA.

O: Great beer. I drank a ton of these while they were on tap at the brewery. Definitely wish I could drink this on the regular.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Notes from 6/4/10

Holy head! It is strange to see a light colored beer with white foamy muffin top two finger thick and sustaining head! Nitro is fun. A bit darker than a pale, but the brewery lights aren't doing anything to help me out. Lacing lasts throughout the drink showing notches the whole way. Very nice.

Piney scent, nuances in smell are tough given the bar setting.

There is a constant fight between the hops and caramel malt in the taste. A tug of war in my mouth, but neither side wins (balance is great). The hops are quite grassy with pine and a touch of grapefruit.

The real kicker here is the mouthfeel. It is medium bodied but the nitro makes it feel lighter. This is my first nitro IPA, awesomely smooth.

I could drink this all night and into the morning. Drinks like 3% ABV.

An IPA brewed with Mango, Pineapple, and Grapefruit purees added. It is served on a Nitro tap.

A: the most noticeable aspect is this brew's creamy head that boasts a beige hue. Its retention is admirable; I've had this beer in front of me for 20 minutes and it hasn't diminished a bit. Body is deep caramel in color with a touch of haze.

S: bouquet is somewhat faint, and suggests all of the fruit that are held within. There is also a nice hit of hops mingling with all of the fruit.

T: I am very pleased that the fruit here is not a main feature, but a complement to this fine IPA. I would never guess it was there had I not been informed beforehand. Semi-sweet malt base is complemented by some tropical fruits. The whole experience is wrapped up with a punch of Pacific Northwest hops.

M: full body with the typical creamy texture offered by the Nitro. The mouthfeel complements the brew well.

D: the best fruited ale I've ever had that wasn't sour. This is fantastic, innovative, and well worth a sample.
