Best Quote During Tasting
If you say it "Tropic-uh-leah" one more time, I'm gonna snap.
|Aroma - It's very bright and citrusy. Juicy might be the best word. It's got grapefruit, orange zest and pineapple. There is subtle resin that sneaks in the back but this one is all fruity hops. The malts are there as sweet white bread and definitely bring something else to the table.|
|Appearance - This one pours a crystal clear light gold with a sticky white head made up of tight bubbles that stick to the sides of the glass it's poured in.|
|Flavor - Yep...still all fruity hops! There's orange may be the biggest player now but the other fruits of grapefruit and pineapple are both still there. The hops are also bringing in some nice bitterness that needs to be there for balance but doesn't steal the show from the hop flavor. The white bread malts are doing a great job of taming the bitterness and let the hops shine through. While the beer is juicy in both aroma and flavor, the finish is quite dry.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is just above medium and the body is medium. It's got a great bite to it and the carbonation tingles your tongue without making the beer seem thin.|
|Overall Impression - Fantastic. I'm a big fan of IPAs that aren't all about melting your tongue with outlandish IBUs. This beer does a great job of giving you enough bitterness to let you know it's an IPA while still focusing on its hops' big fruit flavors. This is another one that was acquired from an out of town source but if you're ever down south, seek it out.|
