This one is from back when an IPA didn't have to be black, hazy, sparkly, or juicy. Thank you Matchless for another brave, clean, and reverent hoppy brew that doesn't participate in identity politics.

This has plenty of malt, sort of a popcorn taste. Hops are listed as Cascade, CTZ, Chinook, and Centennial. Aroma is tangerine and grain. Taste is mango-tinged, some citrus, and the even papaya. Overall it's the inviting fruity flavors, not overdone, on a base of light malt with just enough sweetness. And a dose of bitterness at the end that puts an "amen" on the proceedings.

The label, like all these recent Matchless designs, is an appealing color with simple and bold colors. But someone can explain the golf ball to me. From the 16 oz can purchased at Central Market in Shoreline, Wash.
