This reimagined recipe for Tropical IIPA first hit shelves last year and we were stoked with the results. Batch two (the one in your hand) is just as juicy, so nab a taste while it lasts…
A hefty malt bill plops us deep into hazy terrain, that and the obnoxious amount of late and post ferment hops. It’s a bold celebration of NZ and US strains.
Verdant yeast continues to deliver succulent fruity notes – an intentional deviation from US-05, which we’ve used in this beer before.
Expect a golden hue and a dob of creamy foam. Aromas of lychee, white peach, and mango tickle the nose. To drink, it’s full and smooth, with well-integrated bitterness, and a sumptuous Pina Colada quality late.
