Hops: Magnum, Chinook, Centennial.
100+ IBUs.
10.13.14 Enjoy by date.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 09.11.14.

A: 3 finger head. See through orange. Great lacing. Head retains well.

S: Grapefruit over anything else. I could smell it from an arm's length away while pouring. Fantastic!

T: Grapefruit and melon dominate. It also has pineapple, flower, and hop resin.

M: Creamy and crisp with perfect carbonation.

O: This one is a perfect West Coast IIPA. I finally got around to trying this one and it blew me away. It's very citrusy, the alcohol is completely hidden, and it's very easy to drink. It has a nice candied tropical fruit flavor too, but this isn't overwhelmingly strong as it is in others. I don't like a heavy malt presence in IPAs, and this doesn't have that thankfully. I'm putting the empty bottle on my beer shrine! Thank you Beer Jesus (aka Greg Koch)!

Let's put it this way:

This IPA is phenomenal.

The 10th anniversary edition is spectacular as well, if not more perfect.

The bottle design is nice, rough, and gritty. That makes for good grip and great looks.

This is one beer that I'd legitimately say, the hoppier the better.

Love life,
I am a Sea Creature (look it up)
