Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Crucial Aunt is basically our flagship double IPA Crucial Taunt with a ton of natural mango purée and nectar added to it. We used over 100 lbs of mango purée for a 15 BBL batch. We also increased the Citra on the dry-hop addition to enhance the citrus/fruity aromatic component. This is our most fruit forward beer we have release so far. The mango presence is ridiculous!

Really hazy peach color with off-white head. Aroma is quite dank and vegetal with some sweet fruit in the background. Taste starts sweet and quite fruity but gets more bitter and dank towards the finish. Light to medium body but feels quite smooth. Overall it's a really nice DIPA but I would like more mango.
