On tap at the brewery – 01/22/14
Served in a slender tulip glass

I am guessing this is a reincarnation of the Surf’s Up Symposium brew…

A: Caramel orange color body with some peach tones and a bit of noticeable hop haze. Half finger of frothy paper white on top with good sustainability. Light splashes of lace dance across the glass after a few sips.

S: Lush floral hops on the nose with a firm dank weed aroma. Has that distinct dirty herbal weed stem aroma to it with a soft mix of citrus and pine underneath. Dash of pale malt sweetness but mostly a nice hop forward aroma here.

T: Orange citrus and flower blossoms with some dank weed intertwined. A subtle caramel malt kiss emerges with some soft baked breads as well. There is a relatively high amount of bitterness to the beer but it’s not terrible sharp on the palate. Really well disguised with the alcohol. Nice balance with the hops and light sweetness.

M: Frothy and lush carbonation with a nice drying finish. Peppery bitterness. Long lingering resins.

D: Symposium is a solid hop forward IPA with nice drinkability and well hidden alcohol. Nothing ground breaking by today’s standards but still quite enjoyable none the less.
Good to go. Made a prime candidate for my growler fill.
