Frank & Vrij IPA – ABV 6.9%

With more tropical fruits than you can shake a palm branch at, this “Vermont IPA-ish” has mango, peach, and pineapple notes and a satisfying alcohol warmth.

Look: Golden-amber with a lasting white head and low carbonation.

Aroma: Bursting with tropical fruits: pineapple, orange and passionfruit.

Taste: Even more tropical fruits, as above plus peach and mango, backed up on a bed of creamy malt and caramel. Medium-bodied with slight bitterness and some boozy warmth in the finish.

Verdict: Sweet and creamy and layer upon layer of fruit. I’ll be Frank: this is a belting IPA.
