Pint at TRB.

A: Served a cloudy orange juice color with a thin, oily, off-white head that faded to a bubbly collar. A few greasy spots of lace were left down the glass
S: Hoppy nose with notes of tropical fruits. The tortilla chips and lime really come through as well. Very interesting. Not a ton of taco seasoning on the nose, but this does smell like Mexican food. Slight cumin as the beer warms.
T: Juicy citrus and tropical fruit hops dominate with sweet hints of lemon juice, cumin and faint cilantro poking through. The hops are full of passion fruit, mango, tangerine and a touch of grapefruit. The finish is sweet and juicy, and the aftertaste is spicy and has a savory hint of chili powder, and crackery, greasy, tortilla chips. Definitely an interesting flavor profile.
M: The body is on the fuller side of medium, and the mouthfeel is greasy, sweet, juicy and chewy. Carbonation is smooth, tingly and chewy. Oily and full of greasy hop resin. Mouthfeel is on the fuller side.
O: Thankfully the spices complemented the hops rather than turning this beer into a bitter spicy mess. The chips added an interesting oily greasy fried chip taste which really made me want some nachos. I liked this for what it was, as I think they hit the mark perfectly, but as a beverage and an IPA I wouldn't drink this that often.
