What’s Brewin’ – Matchless Hops The New Fruit IPA

Matchless Beer’s IPA pairs bitter notes with bright tropical fruit. You get hints of pineapple, papaya, and later, mango and nectarine. We’re not sure we picked up on the honeydew and cantaloupe at the end but it’s a tasty brew, bright and medium-bodied. Matchless calls it a take on a New England style IPA, fruity and 6.8 ABV. No fruit, the brewer tells us, was harmed in the making of The New Fruit IPA. in Tumwater, WA.
