Innocente Conscience American IPA - Advent Calendar Day 11

For Day 11 of the Beer Advent Calendar we have Innocente Brewing Co Conscience American IPA "Purely Uncorrupted Bitter Ale"

5.7% alcohol, 80 IBU

I've tasted this beer before, as it's right in my wheelhouse, style-wise.  Amber with a medium white head, and aromas of over-ripe mango, grapefruit, pine, and cloves.  The taste is grapefruit and pine with a little caramel. The finish is clean, and despite the 80 IBUs, it's quite balanced.  I'm a big fan of big IPAs, so keep this in mind ....

Perfect for spicy curry, the hops knock back the spice quite nicely.
