Peace Tree No Coast IPA

The Peace Tree Brewing Company is in Knoxville, Iowa. They do a lot of really good and interesting beers and they always have a good time at beer fests.

The beer pours somewhere between a dark honey golden with orange and a light, bright copper and amber. There is over an inch of white to off-white head that leaves layers of lacing down the glass. The aroma is bright citrus, tangerine and orange, ripe tropical fruits and melons, mango. The taste follows the aromas, a bright and intense fruit explosion of various citrus and tropical fruits. The fruit subsides into a lingering bitterness of grapefruit and passion fruit skin. There is just enough malt to hold all this together, but it is the hops that shine. There is a touch of dankness in the end as the beer progresses. The beer is medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and drinks just right. By the power of the Holy Coast, this is good.
