Short's ControversiALE IPA

This is a 6.5% ABV India Pale Ale, that was formerly know as Hangin' Frank (see the "controvesial" story HERE).  It is from Short's Brewing of Elk Rapids, Michigan. 

The beer pours a hazy dark apricot and amber in color. There is a solid half-inch of thick, almost creamy, white, foamy head that leaves thick and sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is dank, citrus, tropical fruit and musk, with mango skins and passion fruit. The taste follows the aromas note for note. This has dankness levels nearing Huma, but adding in more citrus and tropical fruit. Those additions make this one even better. The finish is dry, moderately bitter. The beer drinks smooth and soft.
