  • Pour: The Atomizer IPA pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a 1-finger, off white head with good retention and soapy lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is very citrusy, fruity, grainy, and floral.  There are aromas of grapefruit, orange juice, mango, fresh mountain flowers, very light pine resin, soft caremel, and crackery biscut.
  • Taste: The taste of the Atomizer IPA follows the nose with lots of citrus, tropical fruit, crackery grain, and light herbal flavors.  There are notes of juicy pink grapefruit, orange juice, tangerine, mango, pineapple, crackers, grassy hops, lemon tea, and light pine.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is very crisp, smooth, and juicy with a dry, clean finish.

Overall pairing: The Atomizer IPA is a very bright, very flavorful, punchy, and crushable brew that is pefect for throwing back whilst pumping your fists and wrecking your neck to the brutal death metal onslaught that is Massacre's ass-kicking "Inhuman Condition"!!  'Nuff said!
Cheers and hails!!
