Brilliant golden amber color. Aromas of papaya-mango salsa and edible flowers, pineapple cream danish, chive and herb blend, and sweet potato with a silky, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a seamless, odd, carefree yams with mint, coconut-date bar, endive, and nutskin finish. A subtle flavored IPA that is a pleasure to drink.

Flavored IPAs are a relatively new beer style developed and popularized in the mid-2010's. They are characterized by the addition of other flavor ingredients, most notably citrus fruit juices used to complement and augment the citrus-forward nature of newer hop varieties used in American IPAs.
