Very Good
Notes: A soft and hazy take on a popular, classic style.

Juicy, soft, and bursting with tropical fruit flavours, this hazy IPA showcases a blend of bold hops and aromatic yeast against a big body from high protein malts, replicating the sumptuous, smooth mouthfeel of ripe mango. It finishes with a low bitterness to let the hop aromas and flavours linger on your palate.

Aroma & Flavour: mango pulp and pineapple chunks combined with navel orange
Body: Silky, full-bodied and juicy with soft, pillowy carbonation
Aftertaste: Lasting juicy orange supported by resinous hop notes

Good rye ipa.
Certainly the least hopped cloudwater ipa I've ever had.
Nowhere there is noted that there is rye in this one but the softness and mostly the peppery notes make its presence undoubtful

Pours a hazy, dark golden coloration with a large foamy head. Absolutely intoxicating of biscuity malt and vibrant tropical, citrus and stone fruit hops, with peach, passion fruit and grapefruit dominating as well as a hint of mango, lime peel and a light grassy dankness and pine. Taste follows the nose, with some nice, light biscuity malt up front and intense, sweet and juicy tropical and stone fruit notes of peach, passion fruit and mango, as well as zesty citrus fruit notes of grapefruit and lime peel, with just a hint of grassy dankness and pine. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some slightly dank tropical/citrus notes and pine lingering in the aftertaste. Soft, pillowy mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

A superb IPA with an intoxicating tropical aroma that you can smell from across the room and just the right balance of sweet stone, slightly acidic tropical and zesty citrus fruit, as well as juicy and slightly dank, resinous and bitter notes. An absolutely fantastic offering, just the perfect mixture between a WC and NE IPA, with an absolutely perfect balance. The perfect IPA in my humble opinion, I could drink this all day. And this is their standard, signature IPA, by the way. No fancy collaborations, no hype, just an honest, simple, yet perfectly balanced IPA.

Pours a hazy orange with thick, soft foam.

Smell is juicy and tropical with notes of peaches, mango, citrus and grass. Sooo inviting...

Taste is juicy and tropical with notes of peaches, apricots and citrus and some sweetness. Bitterness is mild to moderate with perfect bite and hop burn. Balance is superb.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and well carbonated.

Overall, another outstanding IPA by Cloudwater. In my mind he best brewery in Europe.
