Brilliant gold color. Attractive aromas and flavors of honeyed peach spice cake, toasted herbs, grilled tropical fruits, and floral tea with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, intriguing, long citrus peels, pine, radicchio, and chili pepper finish. A successful marriage of fruit, hops and a dash of heat, perfect for Latin fare.

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.
