Thanks to Joe_Grizzly for this extra in a recent trade box that should really have exploded from the force of the hops contained within. 22 oz. doomed bottle split with my wife.

The pop brings foam fizzing right up to the edge of the bottle: these two breweries didn’t skimp on the carbonation bill. Fake tan orange. Smells orange too, and mango, sweet.

Cluster’s Last Stand is a pretty good name for a beer, but this brew falls to LCCD syndrome (least common collaboration denominator). Butter-sweet malts greet my palate. Sourdough pretzels, orange Tang, nasty earthiness which roars in mid-palate & drowns out everything else. I’ve let it warm up a bit to confirm, but doctor, the patient is dead.

Separately, these two breweries kick some serious IPA ass; together, I’m not sure their foot could reach my ankles. A collaboration gone seriously wrong. Drain pour.

12 oz on tap at the beach club

light orange, like a proper nuevo style double ipa

smells like a mango...not mango scented hops, an actual mango.

boozy...tropical boozy

thin and boozy, stickier and stickier as it comes to temp...relatively dry for the style. not a lot of residual sweetness

a slightly above average new style dipa (dirtwolf, sucks, chillwave, etc...). not quite ready to play with the big boys, but close.
