Maracuyá IPA (Passion Fruit)
A cream colored lacing grips the side of your glass as a copper color refracts through this rich IPA. Sweet and tart aromas of maracuyá (passion fruit) pair beautifully with carefully selected hops to produce a warm citrus fruit nose. First sips will bring a burst of hop bitterness trailed by a firm malt backbone that enlivens the palate and remains only momentarily. Finish is clean and balanced and a medium body is somewhat less filling and allows for continued enjoyment. Salud!

Suggested Food Pairings
A fulfilling IPA, this beer stands alone. However, some suggested foods you might like to pair it with are: Main Dishes: The sweet aroma and balanced tart/ caramel finish pairs well with teriyaki, Korean or sweet barbecued chicken. Also well suited for sushi rolls with strong Sriracha or umami sauces.
