Mortal Bloom IPA is a vibrant journey through a tropical paradise, embodied in a can. Its radiantly hazy appearance hints at the lush experience waiting within. Pouring a glass reveals a moderately hazy, golden hue that sets the stage for the vibrant aroma that follows. The nose is greeted by an explosion of citrus, with prominent notes of pineapple and mango, thanks to the Citra, Mosaic, and Cascade hops. These tropical fruits dance together, promising a complex and inviting flavor profile.

The first sip confirms the promise of the aroma. The citrus and tropical notes hit the palate with an intensity that is both refreshing and exhilarating. Despite its bold flavors, Mortal Bloom manages to keep its bitterness in check. At 50 IBUs, the bitterness is present but subtle, allowing the fruitiness to shine through without being overpowering. The combination of wheat malt and oats contributes to a soft, velvety mouthfeel that makes each sip incredibly smooth and satisfying.
