Southern Pines Brewing Company Tropicalismo Pale Ale

I have here another beer that was delivered via Brewpublik ( here in Charlotte, NC and they do have an operation in Raleigh/Durham as well, this is Southern Pines Brewing Company Tropicalismo Pale Ale, 6.1% ABV and an IBU of 54. Tropicalismo is brewed with loads of late addition Mosaic, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops in Southern Pines North Carolina. Tropicalismo is a summer seasonal beer; it pours a clear golden color with a one finger white head that is quick to dissipate. Tropicalismo gives off a fruity juicy aroma of tropical citrus notes with some light floral scents. The taste is nicely filled with fruity flavors like slight Guava, grapefruit and orange that lead to the back of the mouth where you find a bittering note. The mouth feel is light and refreshing, with a bitter juicy fruit finish and a bitter sweet after taste that lingers in your month. This beer is a good summer drinker, easy and refreshing. It gets a C+, it just that the tropical fruit flavors weren’t as strong or pronounced as I would have liked them, but they were okay. The hop flavors were slightly less then I like as well, so the overall flavor of Tropicalismo was not bold enough for me to rate this Southern Pines Brewing Company Pale Ale higher. I still enjoyed this beer. Tropicalismo Could be a bolder flavored beer in my opinion. I kind of recommend Tropicalismo, it’s not such a bad beer. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
