Notes/Commercial Description:
A tropical storm originating in the North Atlantic Ocean, it rotates in the opposite direction to a Cyclone. This IPA only uses punchy American hops: Simco, Citra and Mosaic giving a fruit, lemon and pine taste bomb. Get it now while it’s Hurricane season – this Category Five brew will do more than tickle the taste buds.

On tap at Farrington's, Dublin.

Rusty amber with a snow white collar with lace.
Big mashed mango nose, with some resin and herb underneath.
Apricot up front with a bit of yellow plum, jam and caramel then resin, a bit of cat and Orangina for hops.
Pink grapefruit finish and orange rind linger.
Medium, oily, good chew.

Brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra; the American entry for Eight Degrees' #hopoff.

Solid, chunky IPA with lots of angles for the hop character - it's possible to trace all three varieties. Nice to see something with no C hops. Shapes of Sierra Nevada in balance and craftsmanship.
