Beer Review: Tickle Parts – Passionfruit (Levante Brewing Company)

Tickle Parts – Passionfruit by Levante Brewing Company

Tickle Parts might be one of the best known beers for Levante Brewing Company; and for good reason. It is a wonderfully well done IPA that is extremely tasty. And usually when a brewery has a super strong, very good beer that gets lots of and lots of positive feedback; they release several variants throughout the years on it. And this just so happens to be one of those variants. This being Passionfruit. Same Tickle Part goodness plus added passionfruit. Does it hold up? Does the addition of passionfruit make it better …. or worse?

Lets find out!

Beer: Tickle Parts – Passionfruit
Brewery: Levante Brewing Company
Style: IPA – New England
ABV: 7%
IBU: 47
Untappd Write-Up: Tickle Parts is an exceptionally dry-hopped New England IPA, with low bitterness, rising hop aroma and a feathery-soft mouthfeel. Anticipate chunks of pineapple and tender clementine juices from the base beer before extracurricular waves of tangy passionfruit burst into existence, ensuring Tickle Parts Passion’s place in the sate-lunar-landscape.

Appearance is a cloudy hazy orange. Exactly like the original tickle parts this looks just as hazy, just as cloudy, just as unfiltered, just as orange, just as delicious.

Aroma is a combination of fruits and hops. You got a lot of citrusy hop notes bouncing around your nostrils, and you get a lot of fruity notes as well, mostly orange, pineapple, and softer clementine. You also get a big burst of passionfruit as soon as you crack the tab on this bad boy, it just explodes out.

This is a soft, pillowy, sweet, fruity, delicious NEIPA. You get all kinds of strong notes and soft notes that work to create a complex soft, juicy drink. You get strong bursting flavor notes of citrus, passionfruit, pineapple, and hop. You get soft notes of clementine, tangerine, orange, and a slight hop. This is smooth, this is not boozy and at 7% its an easy drink and won’t really get you hammered either. The mouthfeel is nice, its soft, its pillowy, its not heavy, its just playful and nice.

My Untappd Rating: ****
Global Untappd Rating: 3.94 (as of 11.19.19)

Chugging away here in November. 19 days down, and 19 blogs done. That makes only 11 more. This month is certainly going fast! Enjoy it all! And Happy International Men’s Day. If your struggling with mental illness, issues, or anything, talk to someone. You don’t need to “man up”.

Cheers all!

    1. I checked your site out Connor. I’m not too familiar with Wix websites. I was looking to give a link (or equivalent) and then to follow your blog (which I believe I did as I’ve gotten a few emails of), but also to leave a comment. Couldn’t find the section per blog post on how to leave comment or like.

      Glad you enjoyed the review here!
