Growler into Tulip
A: One finger white head that’s supported by some mild to weak carbonation. Clear, filtered brew with a dark straw-golden hue, looks pretty light - has some light retention.
S: Mellow fruity aromas, tropical esters, with notes of earth. Mango, with remote spices, and subdued florals, tails of dry crisp pine. Bit of swirling provokes more tropical esters – papaya and smooth pineapple.
T: Fruity and mellow up front with malt presence that’s crisp and constructive. Mid mouth picks up the nose with earthy, fresh grass, mango, and other tropical esters carrying suppressed flowery flavor. The finish revitalizes the mild straw malt with the flavor of fresh pine needles and bitter natural sap. The pine and malt interactions yield a dry character that helps to transition the fruit facets into the after taste.
M: Well-bodied, light carbonation, refreshing, doesn’t leave too much after taste, and doesn’t over or under dominate the palate at any point.
O: This is a solid AIPA, definitely a contender for one of my favorites. Eloquently combines all elements that compose your ideal AIPA. Juicy style that is both refreshing and enjoyable to sip. I’m a big fan of the tropical fruit profile and centennial holds it down in my opinion. Winner.
