This beer is one of the first DIPAs brewed in Brazil and it is heavily influenced by American DIPAs. In fact this was a recipe developed by Patrick Zanello from Colorado and Matt Brynildson from Firestone Walker while visiting Brazil for beer events.
This was brewed only once so far and hopefully will get into production soon.

Appearance: It pours a copper/reddish cristal color, with a gorgeous and creamy white head that persists for a long time leaving spider-web lacing around my pint glass. Very nice.

Aroma: This is one of the fruitiest DIPAs I've ever smelled. Very pungent with lots of tangerine, passion fruit, orange, grapefruit, strawberries and other red fruits.

Taste: Follows nose and starts with a big fruity carachter, very citric and almost a little sour. Lots of tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit and orange. The fruit/citric taste soon gives away to a lot of mollasses and honey sweetness. Bitterness is almost non-existent and the aftertaste is again fruity and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Body is moderate to high with alcohol somewhat perceptible (maybe because of the lack of bitterness). Carbonation is moderate and very well done. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth.

Drinkability: Overall this beer is still a test batch and as such it still needs some adjustments. The main flaw is the lack of bitterness to balance the malt sweetness and citric hop presence. The booze also needs to be more well hidden. Having said that this is still a very drinkable and pleasant beer that I'm sure I'm going to enjoy a lot in the future.
