Medium gold in color with an attractive orange tinge, this IPA offers a nose of citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits, pine, herbs and toffee-like malt. On the palate, the spicy brew displays moderate flavoring and bittering hops alongside a slightly sweet, earthy, assertive malt profile accentuated by pineapple notes and other complex esters. With a medium body, no astringency and moderate carbonation, this beer ranks as a satisfying IPA with an emphasis on malts and fruity esters. Hops are a bit less prevalent than in other examples of this popular style, but the beer’s flavor and bitterness fit the IPA style.
