A bit about the beer
Ingredients - Water, malted barley, yeast, hops, citrus fruit
For a short history of Fourpure Brewing company have a look at a previous post on the Shapeshifter West Coast IPA.
According to the official description, this citrus IPA was first released in April of 2016. It is described as "pure tropical, fruity pleasure in a glass. Fresh orange zest and heaps of extremely aromatic hops give this beer bright intense flavour of mango, papaya and bitter orange. A restrained yet present bitterness makes you want that next sip, the next one, and the one after that. Hoppy, zesty, refreshing".
For me, poured from a crafty can with some decent canwork, it has a slightly cloudy orange colour with a dense white head with good retention. Aromas are full of citrus - grapefruit, tangerine, and also some tropical notes of mango and papaya coming through. On the taste there is a nice combination of sweet (vanilla and honey) and bitter (grapefruit) with a lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit flavours.
A really great IPA this!
So far everything from this brewery I have really enjoyed, looking forward to get my hands on the rest of their range.
