A generously hopped IPA with a good amount of malt backbone to match[Character]Malt sweetness is balanced by bitterness and flavor from hops with citrus and berry nuances.[Food Pairing]Salami, carrot and walnut salad, fried whitebait or other white fish with basil sauce[Naming]Within the Mari family, the energetic and lively girls always stand out, but eldest son, Mario, and his brothers are every bit as bold. The youngest, Kyuta, is at an impressionable age, but has a strong and colourful core, spending his days practicing day and night in preparation for the world skateboarding competition.[Brewer's Voice]Most of the IPAs in the Mari Family series have been light in color and focus more on the tropical fruit character from American hops. For this addition to the family, we wanted to highlight the rich flavor and subtle sweetness of malt as a way to bring out the sweet fruit and citrus hop characters.
The malt base is a blend of three varieties and creates an orange hue with a round and subtle sweetness. Citra, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops add flavors of sweet fruit, tangerine, orange, and berry. Yeast contribution is kept to a minimum but focuses on coconut and apricot nuances.
