Being the most popular craft beer style in America, IPAs seem ubiquitous these days. With a big malt personality backed by complex fruity esters and an appealing lineup of hops, this version definitely ranks as a standout. The beer pours deep gold and clear with a substantial head of fluffy white foam. Aromas of apricot, grapefruit, lemongrass and sweet malt meld into a bouquet that begs the drinker to take a sip. Layers of creamy malt notes unfold on the tongue, followed by moderate earthy, citrusy, tropical fruit hop character and light bitterness. Some may even pick up a hint of berries behind the chewy malt backbone. This ale could perhaps benefit from a touch more flavor and bittering hops to balance the impressive malt profile.
