Tin Whiskers Flip Switch IPA

This 6.2% ABV India Pale Ale is from the Tin Whiskers Brewing Company of St. Paul, Minnesota. All of their beers are named after things to do with electrical circuitry. So, their motto is "Join the Resistance."  Get it?

The beer pours a deep amber and copper, with a bit of haze. There is a relatively short head of off-white foam that leaves sticky lacing down the glass. The aroma is hop forward, very fruity, but still relatively mild. The fruit is citrus and ripe tropical fruits. The taste is caramel malt, a bit of citrus, just a hint of pine, and a bubble gum flavor (think Double Bubble) you sometimes get, most particularly in American pale ales. The finish is dry and moderately bitter. It drinks medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. I liked it better as it warmed a bit and opened up.
