Bright copper color. Aromas and flavors of candied citrus, panettone with almond icing, and ripe mango with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dryish medium body and a peppery, medium-length finish revealing impressions of raw radish and arugula finish. A rich and fruity IPA with dry and bitter finish; a flavorful IPA for the holidays.

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.
