Description 

Brewed with hops hailing from the South Pacific, Archipelago is an unfiltered IPA that brings a taste of the tropics to the south. Hopped with South Pacific gems Enigma, Motueka, and Galaxy (with a little Mosaic added for good measure), this beer is a juice bomb of tropical flavors, including passionfruit and rockmelon. Archipelago plays well with grilled foods, spicy cuisine, and fruity desserts. Clocking in at 7.0% ABV, this moderately bittered beer packs a juicy mouthfeel and full hop aroma, resulting in an incredibly refreshing IPA.

Archipelago by Monday Night Brewing is being judged as a American IPA (BJCP Style 21A). The first noticeable traits of this beer are its juicy aromas, filled to the brim with mango, tangerine, and melon. This IPA boasts a hazy dark yellow coloring, with a prevalent white head that lasted from beginning to end.  Upon tasting, it exhibited a dazzling amount of grapefruit-type hop flavors, melding into something like an adult juice box. Its bitterness was smooth, and fairly firm, which carried over into its finish, which was medium with an underlying body boost derived from a lactose addition. An enjoyable beer, very drinkable, well-conceived and well-executed.
