MrTipple (4164) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Subtle tropical fruits, mango, pale grain malts. Clear that, small, creamy, off-white head. Light bitter. Light tropical fruits, more mango, passion fruit, light papaya, fairly lively carbonation, bitter and dry in the finish. Decent IPA, too fizzy for me, but nice tropical fruits in aroma and palate. Keg at The Black Sheep, Dublin.
