New Belgium Brewing Liquid Paradise IPA
What the brewers say
"Boasts a mélange of tropical notes to create a delicately bitter and extremely aromatic IPA."
What our panel thought
"Solid orange, pineapple, grapefruit aromas, with dank, spicy pine, bread crust. Mild, bready sweetness throughout, with firm bitterness; flavors of pineapple, grapefruit peel, peppery spice. Slight chalky minerality; finishes mostly dry and clean, hops and sweetness lingering. Nice blend of old and new."
What our editors thought
"Nose of pomegranate and rose. The sip dives into tropical territory, with punchy, lightly bitter tropical/citrus fruit. Mid-low bitterness maintains the fruit party. Just enough structure."
