|Bronx Brewery Build For This
This is a "Northeast IPA" at 7% ABV. It opens with light aromas
of tropical fruits especially mango in the forefront and hints of
funk behind. Ccitrusy hops lead the flavor profile with ample
notes of bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is full and crisp.
Finish is crisp and lightly dry. Less juicy and sweet than most
NEIPA but nonetheless a solid, well made beer.
Overall Rating: Good
