Mast Landing Brewing Company
Saccarappa India Pale Ale
American IPA
16oz, 4-Pack
Finger of off-white foam, even surface with good density and retention, big splotches of foam rather than streak, very good stickiness as well. Cloudy dark orange hued liquid with a warm glow, not many visible bubbles. Juicy nose of pink grapefruit, tangerine to lime citrus, mango, papaya, guava fruit, coal tar, pine sap, cocoa powder, not devoid of hoppy snap and bitterness but not the focal point, heavy enough to stick around for some time. Full-bodied, foamy and soft, here too not bitter, seems crafted for smooth and easy enjoyment. Much more bread and biscuit here with more malty cocoa and mocha as well, In turn the pink grapefruit and tangelo citrus more restrained. The tar and metal notes present without leading into damp dankness. More basic apricot, peach fruit, not a lot of more tropical pineapple, papaya bite. Finishes somewhat bluntly, like a punch to the shoulder. Very drinkable and the ABV well managed.
