Cigar City Space Pope IPA

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - American Ipa -

ABV: 7.3% | IBUS: 57 | SRM: 13 What the brewer says

“Brewed with an as­tro­nom­i­cal amount of Mo­saic, Ci­tra, CTZ, and Gal­axy hops that lend notes of pas­sion fruit and melon to the clean fla­vors of base malt and a touch of crys­tal malt for depth of char­ac­ter.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Or­ange and trop­i­cal—al­most Or­ange Julius. Pineap­ple, a touch of pas­sion fruit or guava. A bit of herbal and dank in the back­ground. Slight pine. Sim­ple malt sweet­ness.” Fla­vor: “Well balanced with a lightly toasted malt bill sup­port­ing citrus and trop­i­cal fruit and a touch of light stone fruit. Fin­ishes a bit sweet, but the medium-high lin­ger­ing bit­ter­ness helps to cut through the sweet­ness. Mod­er­ate al­co­hol warmth.” Over­all: “Very or­ange with some sup­port­ing trop­i­cal fruit, grassy, and dank. The hops bit­ter­ness is sub­dued; some might want more, but over­all, a good bal­ance to me. A big juicy trop­i­cal IPA. Yum!”
