Source/Serving: 22oz bottle
S: Juicy gauva, mango, and blood orange. Hints of lemon verbena, toast, and peppery booze.
T: Up front, solid maltiness is immediately overtaken by intense guava, mango and orange hoppiness. Bitterness kicks in soon, which is firm but not overwhelming and has a orange peel pithiness to it. Above average body without too much oiliness gives this a firm, smooth character. Lots of brown sugar malt and caramel malt, some spicy mango hop, not unlike a thai curry really. Finish is pithy, grassy, piney and spicy hoppiness, lingering smooth bitterness, and caramel.
Notes: A nice balanced DIPA with an abundance of new hop varietals.
Serving type: bottle
