Passion Fruit Double IPA, Garage Brewing Co.

Copious amounts of Mosaic and Amarillo hops bring both east and west IPA styles together. This IPA truly set itself apart from the IPA hordes with a resinous candied tropical experience and hints of bitterness throughout.

Passion Fruit Double IPA by Garage Brewing Co. was judged as Fruit Beer (29A BJCP 2021) with a base style of Double IPA (22A). A neutral malty aroma with a hint of crystal malt rests underneath a relatively subtle fruit character. Fruit aromas hint at nectarine and pineapple, but are quite restrained. The color is light copper and very clear. An off-white, light head persists on the rim of the glass. The flavor is assertively bitter with a mild, underripe fruit skin quality (think of the sharpness you might get from chewing the skin of a young Granny Smith or other tart apple). Alcohol can also be tasted, lending a slight nuttiness and light solvent-like character. The fruity flavors are tropical and grapefruit-like. The mouthfeel is relatively full-bodied, and warmth from alcohol is apparent. Overall, this comes across as a very big and bold beer with somewhat angular fruit and alcohol flavors that challenge the palate. If bold beers are your jam, this is a beer you would want to find and enjoy.
