Share This Review

Trickster IPA is an American IPA brewed by Green Man Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The IPA pours a hazy yellow-orange and is topped by a thick cap of rocky off-white foam that shows excellent retention. Soapy patches of residue cling to the sides while a thin ring of bubbly froth rounds the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is juicy sweet with a scent of orange and mango. Hints of pine and yeast also appear.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of doughy bread that sweetens with juicy pineapple and mango. A mild bite of grapefruit pops in the finish before receding to tangy orange. A hint of spicy hops flavor is detected as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a body that’s a shade over medium and has less-than-moderate carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.

Overall

Presents well with a feel that’s slightly chewy, and as such, it could use a little more carbonation. The IPA is incredibly juicy as tropical fruit dominates the nose and palate while offering a little citrus on the backend. The IBU count is on the upper range for the style and yet the Trickster IPA tastes like it could use more bitterness. Otherwise, this is a refreshing, easy-drinking brew.
