Torrential Downpour is a seasonal Hazy IPA from PlatformBeer initially based out of Cleveland, Ohio. 7.1% ABV and 34 IBU highlight this ale which is a Hazy IPA brewed with lactose sugar to provide a creamy and smooth mouthfeel which is coupled by the use of Citra and El Dorado Hops, as well as the use of strawberry puree to give it a fruit forward kick.
Personally, I found this beer to have a nice flavor to it and I was able to detect the strawberry notes and have to admit the overall creaminess was nice on this one. Juicy, fruity and smooth this one overall provided a nice experience. Other notes in the aroma and flavor that I came across to me were pineapple, orange, and grapefruit, which is not too surprising for this style. And. there was a good amount of bitterness and dryness that matched up well. For me, this beer was definitely worth the try and 4 out of 5 for my enjoyment.
