It's time to visit the continent with a session IPA from Spanish brewers, Peninsula.
Puro Tropikal is a very lively beer that pours a hazy orange with a huge frothy, cream coloured head. It has a strong aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruit with a slight floral hint. I prepared myself to be hit with a pithy bitter bomb as I nervously took my first sip but I was very pleasantly surprised.
The taste is perfectly balanced with bitter grapefruit blending with sweet tropical notes of pineapple and mango, finishing with a dash of pithy bitterness. It's well carbonated and has a medium body, making it a very refreshing beer.
After smelling it I thought this would taste so pithy but it's surprisingly pleasant. It's not overly bitter and even though it's quite fizzy, it's incredibly easy to drink. I'd definitely put this on my IPAs to drink again list - Puro Tropikal, Ale Be Seeing You again!
