TASTING NOTES: REBORN
WEST COAST IPA
By Wavemaker Craft Brewery & Distillery
Appearance: Pours a luminous and hazy tangerine orange. Foam is a pithy off-white orange that lingers and laces on the glass.
Aroma: Nose is bright and heavy on tropical citrus. I also get notes of cantaloupe with faint bits of lychee.
Flavour Profile: The juicy theme continues to the sip from the aroma. Bitterness is rounded and firm. I get flavours of pineapple, tangerine and soft peach in the mix. Finish is smooth with a mouth coating dose of lupulin flavouring.
Overall: A true to style west coast IPA that is packed with tropical hop flavours. Reborn hides its 6.0% abv well, and has tempting flavours that make this beer hard to put down.
Pairing: I had this beer with some spicy fish tacos. The bitterness kept the spice in check and was quite complimentary to the cilantro in the salsa.
