This IPA features a potpourri of aromas: Notes of passion fruit and tangerines combine with piney and citrusy hop aromatics to pack a real punch to the nostrils. Golden in color with a very clear, medium-white head that laced the glass nicely. The head was not tightly condensed and with the low to medium carbonation levels shown here, the beer appeared to be bottle conditioned. The fruitiness in the flavor was somewhat subdued in relation to the pungent aromatics, however the flavor still delivered a solid West Coast hop presence balanced by Caramel malt sweetness and followed by a dry and not overly bitter finish. Overall, this IPA provides a pleasant drinking experience with a wonderful bouquet that keeps floating up throughout the entire glass.
