Prairie Artisanal Ales Phantasmagoria Double India Pale Ale

Prairie Artisan Ales Phantasmagoria Double India Pale Ale . 8% ABV. 70 IBU. Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Clouded, pale golden, lush ivory head atop.

Bold tropical fruit aromatics: mango, papaya, passionfruit. Citric traces, too, and maybe a touch of pine, but it’s mostly sweet and juicy.

In the mouth: lively hop attack on the tongue. Bitterness is big, fresh, vibrant, refreshing. Citrus-y notes in the hop profile pop up and compete with the sweet tropical tones. Juicy bumps up against sweet, taking turns with bitter. Medium-bodied, long, juicy/bitter finish.

This is one is just a little different. And I like that.

A little info stolen from somewhere: Phantasmagoria is an IPA that is low in malt flavors, but high in hops. We brew this beer as a nod to the big hoppy beers of the west coast. We use loads of citrusy and piney hops at the end of the boil and in the fermenter to make this beer a hop experience.
