This hazy, peach-colored Double IPA with a medium-white head delivered a very distinct passion fruit aroma with notes of overripe tangerines and just a wisp of citrus.

Although hops are more pronounced in the flavor than was the case in the bouquet this beer wafted, it is still defined by a myriad of fruity esters and citrus hops. Alcohol is on the low end of the spectrum and works well here as malt takes a backseat to the aforementioned fruity character.

This is a full-bodied ale with medium levels of carbonation and a subdued bitterness in the finish.

Overall, Tesseract is a fruit basket of a beer that lends its own spin to the oft-employed Double IPA style.
