TOCCALMATTONow, here we have a pleasant surprise from the IPA-dimension! This delicious beverage has an inviting intensely yellow colour to it, accompaniedby a large, creamy head topping it. There’s a vast selection of fruity features here spanning from mandarina/orange to passion fruit, with hints of lemon underneath. This is quite reversed in the tasteprocess, where the lemon comes out marginally dominating, followed by melon’ish fruit and an evolving bitterness that is not disturbing at all, just overall a great balance from start ’till finish. The aftertaste is also really nice, leaving a tenderly bitter sting on the tongue.
