A Note on This Beer
One thing’s for sure about M.I.A.’s Florida-made Neon IPA -- loaded with 100% Citra Hops and hazier than a Miami bar crawl, it’s warm weather refreshment from first fruity sip to last.
M.I.A. mastered the hazy NE-style juicebomb before hazies were en vogue, calling Neon a White IPA for its bright color, fluffy smoothness and fruity hop flavors and aroma. Not even the Miami sunlight can shine through the smoothie-like body of Neon. Mandarin and melon notes from the Citra Hops rise to embrace every single taste bud, and notes of dank grapefruit juice meander through the soft mouthfeel. Like biting into a plump tangerine and letting the juice wash over your tongue, Neon sips like citrus juice spiked with a sneaky 7.5% ABV.
Stunningly fresh and fruity, @Ken T. on Untappd claims it’s the “Perfect noon IPA.” While some of us can’t luxuriate in the South Beach sun all day long (um...because jobs), we’ve gotta agree with all the fans rating it 4.09 on BeerAdvocate -- Neon is bright and hoppy anytime drinking. From the brewery Timeout Miami calls “a staple in the Miami craft beer scene,” M.I.A. is making some seriously juicy waves.
