COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shake out from Aroma Coma with Aroma Prieta. Aroma Coma’s sister beer mirrors its twin starting with primarily American 2-row barley malt. and a touch of Caramalt for body. From there, we turn things upside down. This time, Prieta leaves behind Aroma Coma’s North American hops for some Southern Hemisphere hop action. New Zealand hops Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Jade, and Motueka and Aussie hop Helga in the double dry-hop give Aroma Prieta huge notes of tropical fruit, gooseberries, and grapefruit. Like Aroma Coma but different: breathe in these hops and enjoy.

Good and malty. Bitter, lots of herbal and floral hops, but imparted a sticky, dank, weed like flavor that I did not care for. Pours hazy yellow. Soft carbonation.

Benzai (10618) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle [from Secret Summer Santa 2015, thanks to ineedbeer] @ home. Clear yellow to slightly golden color, medium to full sized white to off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is lightly malts, loads of hop, grapefruit, slightly grassy, nicely pine in there lightly as well. Love it. Taste lightly malts, hops, again grapefruit with a touch of pine and moderately bitter. Medium body and carbonation. This is just pure hop juice. I mean it. Squeezed hops. Love it!

PhillyCraft (4072) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Sample tried at Beer 30. Pours golden color with notes of orange, pineapple, and other dank hops. theres a strong malt bill but not enough to outshine the hops. Seems like this is much better than the last batch judging by the reviews.

Not a good ipa example. Pours an ugly clear yellow with a white head. Smells nice, herby and hoppy and a bit of citrus. Taste however is not good, dominated by pineapple that has gone bad, and a lingering bitterness. Had on tap at the brewery.

"Like aroma coma, definitely in the upper eschelon of IPAs. Same feel, but the hops are more spicy (not as good) but practically bursting with tropical fruit aroma and flavors (great). I’ll put this a half notch below coma only cuz we had it practically fresh off the vine, but this stuff is great. Kudos to Drakes on yet another hit!"

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2013
On tap at Encinitas ale house... Pours pale golden brown and topped with a thin wispy head... Old faded papery citrus aroma... Slight improvement in the flavor but not much. Papery malty base, seems oxidized, and a faint citrus profile and bitter backend. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Old.

Draft @ Drakes. Clearish light amber with a fine white head. Aroma of white grapes, grapefruit peel, cat pee and tropical fruit, the hop aroma is so strong that it overpowers any malt scent. Flavor is loaded with fresh, juicy hops, it has a strong bitterness with mild malt sweetness and finishes dry. Medium body with a long, dry, bitter finish. Wow fantastic beer, loaded with fresh hop aroma and a very balanced flavor that leans to the bitter side.
