Today I'm checking out Coppertail's Hyperbolic IPA, their new seasonal Extra IPA. As usual, awesome label art, this time focused on space, including a flying space turtle!
Mangoes, tangerines, orange marmalade aroma. YUM! Beautiful tropical fruity flavors come first, mango and orange stand out. Those are followed by a spicy, hoppy kick. Pine and light citrus rind add more flavor and bitterness.
There is some dryness and a hit of alcohol at the finish. The alcohol makes some pithy flavors stand out. I didn't love that, but it did go away with a little warmth. Nice beer. Let it warm up a touch before drinking.
