Creature Comforts Tropicália
Creature Comforts Tropicália is an American IPA. Went up to Athens recently for a long weekend of eating and drinking. I made plans to met up with Andrew and check out Creature Comforts together, but sadly we got into town too late to do the tour. On the plus side I found this at Trappeze just a short time later!
Oh yeah, this is right there in my IPA zone. Lots of big citrus and tropical fruit on the nose. The taste matches this quite well with a lot of juicy orange. The hop bitterness lingers for a short time, and the malt base is never upfront but is doing the job well enough.
Personal taste is always a big factor in how an IPA is perceived, Andrew did not care for this at all when he had it at the brewery. I guess one man’s outstanding is another man’s meh. No single persons opinion is right or wrong, but he’s wrong, this is really good!
