Brewery: Cloudburst Brewing
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: 58 IBUs. IPA with Cashmere, Citra and El Dorado
Brewer Description: (from menu) Guess what Shakira’s 3 favourite hops are? Cashmere, Citra & El Dorado. She told us that, so we made a beer for her. Luckily their flavors are fruity and herbal, so you don’t confuse them with OJ. But haze will be there and bitterness will be near, and that’s the deal my dear. Honestly, there’s nothing left to fear, if you really feel the way we feel… about IPAs.

Intro: On tap at Cloudburst Brewing, Seattle. A 16oz pour into a pint glass.
Appearance: It was a hazy golden straw colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Mango, peach flesh and citrusy mandarin.
Taste: Similar to the aroma with mango and peach plus orange pulp, but bitterness comes through with citrus rind and peel.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and easy to drink but not as ‘juicy’ as other NE IPAs I’ve tried.
