Pours an orange colour. Clear, with a trickle of bead. Head is off-white, lovely and fluffy and meringue-like on top. Retains well. Very good.
Smells malty but tangy. Lots of kiwi, paw-paw and lychee. Lots of orange zest and mandarin as well. Light and refreshing.
Taste is quite sweet, with cake batter malt and some caramel. Some orange zest and mandarin on there that gets some bitter hoppiness towards the back. Largely malty, though. Some vanilla notes and it all ends quite citric but bitter. Bit of a sweet/bitter dichotomy rather than a nice transition/balance. Nice flavours overall though.
Smooth, but a bit lacking in texture, and body.
Nice drinkin' beer, there's obvious signs that it could have been amazing, though, and it remains just nice for me.

First started drinking Drakes via Hopapocalypse and slowly branched out. Aroma Coma is a fantastic late summer beer that is refreshing, bright and full of New Zealand hops.
The initial scent is bright and citrusy. The mouth feel is smooth and crisp. The taste is hop forward but with many complimentary notes that help distinguish its unique taste.
Highly recommend it as a West Coast style IPA.
