Brewer Description: (from menu) Oh El Dorado. We love you for all that you are – soft and subdued, stonefruity, and herbaceous. A true role player, a supporting actor, a helping hop. Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Well, this is your time to step up! We teamed you up with some all stars – Citra & Mosaic – plus a similarly complementary hop in Loral. But this DIPA is about YOU, El Dorado. Shine bright like a diamond!

Intro: On tap at Cloudburst Brewing, Seattle. A 16oz pour into a pint glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour, with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention, and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Melon, passion fruit and citrusy orange with maybe hints of mango.
Taste: Bitter, cantaloupe, melon, orange rind and orange juice.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Good aroma and taste. Well worth a try.
