From 32GP. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 5. BB date dec 2016. Very tropically fruity. Bitterness noticeably lower than expected for the style, but its stilly very tasty and that makes it dangeoursly drinkable

This is an easy drinking fruity IPA which I thought was good.


(L) It has a somewhat cloudy (almost clear) golden hue with a thin white head.

(A) It has a fruity and somewhat piney aroma.

(T) The taste is fruity, grapefruit, pineapple, as well as some pine, malt base, well balanced. Not overly hoppy, not much dankness, good but it didn't stand out to me.

(F) About medium body with modest carbonation.

22 oz bomber, age unknown. Clear, deep yellow with clinging lace. Light nose more like a hoppy pils. Taste includes mild tropical fruits, mineral, rusty finish that works. Medium body and average carbonation with a dry finish.

This is a seriously underrated IPA. Yes, if you're idea of an IPA is that it should taste very bitter and dank, then this isn't the IPA for you. However, if you're looking for an IPA that has a special balance of flavors, where the mix of west coast hops, fruits, and malt a very blended and no one flavor dominates the others, then give this a go. I was surprised by the first taste, expecting much bolder flavors, but was immediately won over by the subtle art of flavor blending. Think of it as the La Fin Du Monde of IPA's (for better or worse, which for me is the better). Mango, apricot, grapefruit flavors with west coast hops and just enough subtle malt flavor to make things interesting. Now if we can just get this here in New Mexico...
