Point Peach Mango IPA

This India Pale Ale is from Stevens Point Brewery of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. It is part of their new sampler pack of various IPA styles. It includes a White IPA, a Peach Mango IPA, a Spruce Tip IPA, and the One Shot IPA, that will be brewed with a rotating single hop. They are all 5.5% ABV with the exception of the first One Shot, which is 6.0% ABV and features Calypso hops.

This beer has 40 IBU's and is brewed with mango and natural flavors. It uses Cascade and Cluster hops. The beer pours a gleaming copper in color. There is three-quarter inches of off-white head. The aroma is a blast of peach, a bit of mango, and a caramel malt base just poking through. The taste is a dueling battle of peaches, darkened caramel, touches of mango, citrus and grass. The peaches are sweet, but the finish is dry and quite bitter. Medium bodied, with a subtle and tingling carbonation.
