TropicáliaTropicália
Notes: A balanced, soft, and juicy IPA. Ripe passion fruit and citrus hop aroma lead to a full, fruit-forward hop flavor that washes over the palate, ending with subtle bitterness. Some folks say they don’t like hoppy beers, and to that we say that hops do not equal bitterness. Hops offer a whole world of flavors, not just bitterness. In Tropicália, they exude a luscious fruit journey your palate can enjoy over and over without fatigue.

Pours a rich gold with good head and lots of lacing. The smell is a little muted out of the glass but it’s a pleasant, tropical fruit aroma with some grainy malt. The taste is tropical fruits, a decent malt back bone, crisp, and relatively light. I’ve loved this beer since I first tried it and it’s impressive off the tap and goes down super easy as always. Give me a choice between this and Jai Alai old edition and it’s close but gotta give the nod to Tropicalia, cheers!

On tap in a standard pint glass.

Sunlit golden color, thin white cap, wave lacing.

Fruity, tropical with some mild citrus aromas.

Tropical fruit punch flavor. Dry pineapple and passion fruit.

Medium body, smooth, and slightly juicy. The hop character is dry and not bitter.

There were 3 different IPAs on tap. I’m glad that I chose this one.

Hoppy and crisp. Little bit of juice - but just a hint.

I had this on tap at a local BBQ joint. Considering the amount of love this gets locally, I was a little disappointed that it didn't live up to the hype so maybe that's reflected in my score. Is it fruity? Yes. Is it bitter? Yes. Is it magically different from other similar beers--not really. If you're looking for a fruity, bitter IPA, it's worth ordering. But if you're expecting something completely different from other IPAs you've had, you may be disappointed like I was that this didn't live up to the hype.

This one hits hard in beautiful ways. It’s like going ten rounds with Mike Tyson, but then going ten rounds with Miranda Kerr right after, ya feel me? Like, the hops hit you l and go boom, but they just hit so beautifully and pleasant. It’s like Anjelica Jolie as the bad witch -yes, please, I would like another!

Awoooooooooo!

The citrus is perfectly balanced with the hops leaving a consistently pleasant after taste that makes you want to take another sip or 10 right away . If your friend says that they don’t like IPAs, this one might make them reconsider!
