You may have enjoyed some extra time at the beach over summer and, while the season is coming to a close, there’s still time to pick the warmest day, find your nearest body of water and bask in some warm rays. Stomping Ground may have found a shortcut to that kind of glory here: Tropical Smash is an addition to their long-running series of fruited sours. The gose uses three different fruits – pineapple, mango and lime – to set the beachy theme, while the use of Galaxy hops adds to the tropical taste.
Of those fruits, it’s mango that holds the upper hand; Tropical Smash doesn't just look like the juice but sweet, fresh and fleshy mango lead the charge. The lime verges towards key lime, thanks to the acidity cutting through just as the fruit appears, with sweet pineapple and a touch of salt bringing up the rear.
