Very Good
Tropical RumbleTropical Rumble
Notes: Session IPA brewed with mango, peach and passionfruit. Heaps of fruity Mosaic hops were added to support the tropical flavours and add a hint of bitterness. A real thirst quencher!

3.79/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look: It has a large, tightly beaded head on the pour. It pours golden. Head retention is quite good.

Smell: It has an array of tropical aromas. The mango and the passion fruit and the two easiest smells to pick up. There are some peach and grainy sweetness to it.

Taste: It is quite fruity and lively. The passion fruit and mango and quite strong with noticeable peach. There is a touch of floral way in the background with a touch of grainy sweetness.

Feel: It has a good deal of carbonation and is moderately light in body.

Overall, it is more candy like that actual fruit like, but the flavors are good none the less.

1 PT. 0.9 FL OZ can
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours amber with golden highlights and a slight haze. it is topped with a mountain of beige head that leaves some nice lacing.

The aroma is light and fruity. The passionfruit seems to be the dominant smell.

The taste is weak tropical fruit and watered down.

Thin mouthfeel

I am diametrically opposed to session IPAs. They taste weak, have less alcohol, and cost as much or more than a regular IPA. Either drink less regular IPAs or drink a hoppy pilsner, which is a much better option in my egotistical opinion.

From Degustasur. 2 months after bb. 1.27€. At Almuñecar's Suites Albayzyn Aparthotel. Very fruity, with strong frutal acidity that gives it refreshing feel but may be a bit a excessive

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate medium golden yellow + apricot colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized finger thick cap in the center of the glass surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of tropical/passionfruit, tropical/mango, and stone fruit/peaches over the top of light to moderate aromas of cereal grain + biscuit malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness and light aromas of pine + tropical/papaya hops.

T: Upfront there are just slightly heavier than light flavors of cereal grain + biscuit malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness and light aromas. That is followed by slightly heavier than moderate flavors of tropical/passionfruit, tropical/mango, and stone fruit/peaches. Finally there are light flavors of pine + tropical/papaya hops which impart a hint of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving slightly suit tropical fruit flavors lingering.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and low ABV. Refreshing and enjoyable with a pleasant amount of tropical fruit flavors and aromas. Definitely sessionable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles around the edges of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mangos and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The initial taste starts off just like the smell and has flavors of mangos and peaches but then notes of passionfruit also start to become apparent. There is no bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: This IPA is quite fruity and goes down very easily. I would consider it as being sessionable.

500 ml can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, with reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lightly tart/tangy peach, mango, passion fruit, tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/earthy hops, fruits, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart/tangy peach, mango, passion fruit, tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness; and light fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peach, mango, passion fruit, tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of of citrus/tropical/earthy hops, fruits, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with zero astringent hop/fruit flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness, tart/tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy/acidic/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is an outstanding fruited session IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of of citrus/tropical/earthy hops, fruit, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/tart/tangy/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Fairly aggressive, but not overwhelming. Awesome juicy/dank hop and fruit complexity, with a solid pale malt backbone. The mosaic hops complement the tropical fruits perfectly. A highly enjoyable offering. One of the best session IPAs I have had.

16.9 oz. can

Pours hazy foggy amber gold with a large creamy white foam head. Smells like tropical stone fruits, citrusy dank floral hops, with some sweet caramelized malt. Tastes like fresh tart tropical passionfruit, mango, peach, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon rind, caramelized crackery bready malt, with some floral earthy herbal dank grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate smooth carbonation. Overall a real nice session IPA with mango, peach and passionfruit.
