Zipline NZ IPA

This 6.8% ABV beer is from the Zipline Brewing Company of Lincoln, Nebraska. This beer features New Zealand hops, thus its name. Zipline only recently started bottling its beers.

The beer pours a clear copper in color. There is a short head of off-white foam. The aroma is tangy citrus, tangerine, mandarin orange, passion fruit, and a very light touch of mango. It has a spicy quality. The taste hits all of the tangy fruit notes of the aromas melding nicely into a toasted and slightly caramel maltiness. There is a moderate bitterness on the finish that increases in intensity as you drink the beer. The finish is quite dry. It is medium bodied with a soft, yet intensely crisp carbonation. It drinks quite easily. Well-balanced, and solidly constructed.
