Had on tap at Monk's, 9/14. This is a big, juicy, aromatic IPA, dripping in tropical fruit, most notably mango. Yet surprisingly dry, with a lemony crispness. Balanced by a sweet center and rounded out with well-executed pine. Mouthfeel is velvety soft, but still effervescent.
Overall, PtE is smooth and well restrained. Not as in your face as something like Sucks or Resin. Very, very solid brew and one of the best in the IPA family. Though probably not THE best - I think that distinction still belongs to Heady.
Serving type: on-tap

A - A little light for an IPA, but looked very clear and very nice. Great amber color.
S - Hoppy and perfect for an IPA
T - Great. High on bitterness but not the bad kind.
M - The best part. Extremely light and smooth going down.
O - Worth the hype.
