Alvarado Street Mai Tai P. A.
What the brewers say
A drier ‘tropical’ IPA. Light on bitterness, heavy on hops aroma (from100 percent Mosaic hops), American 2-row malt. Notes of passion fruit, mango, and lychee.
What our panel thought
Muted aromas of tropical fruit. Very tropical and bright flavors fill the mouth with rushes of pineapple, pas-sion fruit, and kiwi. Low-to-medium bitterness throughout with a soft finish showcasing the hops flavors. Al-most like a clear NEIPA.
What our editors thought
Bold tropical fruit notes evoke passion fruit and mango with deeper layers of musk, coconut husk, and al-mond. The sip hits quickly with a tight but polished bitterness that softens into more lingering citrus and bit-ter orange peel. A thoroughly new-school approach to West Coast IPA.
