I remember buying this IPA not just for its flavors but also for its awesome packaging design.

 



This apparently is a Lonely Planet project that showcases craft beer in which this IPA's 5 main ingredients is sourced from 5 different continents around the world. Mangoes from Africa, malted barley & wheat from the British & Germany, American hops, Australian & New Zealand hops, with subtle gooseberry, passionfruit & spice and lastly, açaí berries from south africa. Hence, International IPA was born.

Too my surprise this is a decent IPA, except I don't really like its color as it's kinda cloudy, murky. A lil too sweet for my liking but all-in-all still a decent one. The arome is lovely, tropical citrusy notes of mango, grapefruit / passionfruit. As for flavor wise it's predominantely mango, with subtle hints of grapefruit / passionfruit. On its label it stated that it has açaí berries in it, in which I have no idea how it taste or smells like as I've never eaten this fruit before.

Too bad this IPA is only brewed once as it's a collab thing. Will they collab again?
