Karate in the WaterKarate in the Water
Notes: We crafted this New England Style IPA to be smooth like Karate In The Water utilizing heaps of flaked oats and flaked wheat. We then karate kicked it full of Australian Enigma hops for a profile reminiscent of diced pineapple and fresh squeezed citrus fruits.

Canned on 7/5/19

Pours a turbid lemony yellow topped with a fair-sized head of thicker white foam that recedes quickly with minimal lacing left behind, along with a frothy collar and virtually no cap.

Aroma bursts with big dank lemon meringue notes and weedy grass from inhale to exhale, with hints of lime woven evenly into the backdrop; coursing with tropical citrus zest and juicy lemonade; residual dank sweetness leaves a mild impression on the end.

Taste is largely lemon zest with an overarching herbaceousness; minerality on the mid-palate along with some dried grass; tangy and underripe tropical fruits come in over time, while a vague exhale of lemongrass characterizes part of the finish.

Mouthfeel shows a slightly gritty body on the lighter side of medium along matched with a mid-level carbonation; vaguely inconsistent, with a fleeting thinness occasionally mistaken for a juicy quality the primary culprit; zesty prickle and lemony tang on the swallow.

Solid NEIPA with some bold, if not one-dimensional character. Could benefit from some refinements/nuance all-around, but the persistent, well-integrated tang of this one leaves it easily crushable in spite of any deficiencies.
