Had this the same day I had the Aroma Prieta and to be honest, I'm not really sure what Drake's was going for releasing two similar IPAs at the same time. They are certainly different. The titular "aroma" was not nearly as exquisite as the Aroma Coma's but was instead much more reserved. Grapefruit, pine and hops are still there but I simply did not enjoy it as much as I did it's sister beer, or many other IPAs for that matter. However, on the other side of the coin, the flavor is much more fleshed out with the Aroma Prieta. Had much more presence and kept it's flavor intact all the way through. Not terribly complex, but lots of citrus and malt and plenty of hops. Overall, I think I still prefer the Aroma Coma simply for the smell. Both are solid IPAs but both are simply outclassed by several other IPAs.
