From Drake’s Brewing – Shake out from Aroma Coma with Aroma Prieta. Aroma Coma’s sister beer mirrors its twin starting with primarily American 2-row barley malt. and a touch of Caramalt for body. From there, we turn things upside down. This time, Prieta leaves behind Aroma Coma’s North American hops for some Southern Hemisphere hop action. New Zealand hops Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Jade, and Motueka and Aussie hop Helga in the double dry-hop give Aroma Prieta huge notes of tropical fruit, gooseberries, and grapefruit. Like Aroma Coma but different: breathe in these hops and enjoy.
Drake’s Brewing – Drake’s Aroma Preita – 22 oz. bottle – 6.75% abv.
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange with no head.
Aroma: Super tropical nose: pineapple guava papaya. Slight pine mixed in.
Taste: a bouquet of bitter and fruity hops. Fairly dry malt. Lingering pine bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Soft carbonation. Full bodied.
Overall: A very drinkable, flavorful aromatic IPA. I perceived this as softer/less spicier and way more approachable than Aroma Coma. I like em both, so it just depends what type of dank IPA you are in the mood for.
