Clouds of Jupiter IPA

Ol' Republic Brewing (Nevada City, CA)
"Unfiltered pale yellow in appearance with a nose of fruit, conifers, and citrus this full-body IPA has a juice-like quality from extra proteins provided by liberal additions of unmalted wheat and oats. We softened the water profile to maximize the aroma and punch up the essential oil perception. Pleasant, slightly sticky and resinous aftertaste lingers but without a huge dose of bitterness, due to a restrained use of Warrior hops. Dry hop profile is melon, berry, orange peel, lime, papaya, pine and fresh peppers from Eukanot. Pungent tropical fruit and pine character comes from Idaho 7. Citra needs no introduction, as it’s been the trendiest hop in West coast brewing for a decade."

Lots of tropical fruitiness with a touch of grapefruit and sweet berries.
Very nice.
