Tap at PtY 2011 release.
A- Into a small nonic pint, the pour is a clear, deep orange with a small, white head that leaves some big sheety lace.
N- The aroma on PtY is a little hard to get at served in the miniature nonic pint glass. But once it warms up a bit you get some serious jackfruit, bitter mango, candied oranges, fresh blood orange.
T- Taste is fresh mango hoppy like biting into a raw mango. Lots of bitter mango skin and juicy mango pulp. Dank, fruity tropicals abound but the seriously dense body here is hard to get through. Some quick, spicy alcohol is present but a non sequitor.
P- Syrupy and dense. Spicy and full.
Obviously the king of DIPAs, but that doesn't mean it has to be my favorite.
Serving type: on-tap
