Having seen the San Diego guys rave about Rip Current for months, a visit was mandatory. Plus points for having a kick-ass pizza food truck outside…I’ve already forgotten the name. At the tap room, four ounce sampler in the glass.

The pour is a darker yellow, low carbonation, looks like nothing special. Then I bring the glass towards my ugly face & behold! I smell the uncut weeds on the path to Heaven’s Gate. Bitterness foreshadowed, fruitiness, sharp mango. Oh god. Four ounces might be gone before I finish this sentence.

Lupulin Lust to rule them, and in the darkness, kick the asses of the rest of the San Diego IPAs. This is what I’m talkin’ about! Citrus & pine on speed bum rush the senses, followed by a never-cresting waves of bitterness. Mango? Passion fruit? Tropical stuff arrives mid-palate, & instead of stinging the bitterness, it’s perfectly complementary. Taste is just like I love my porn: thick & juicy. I almost said dripping, but strike that. Four ounces? Fuck me. Now I can’t even trying anything else on the lovely-looking menu. Time for a full pour.

This one has that Cowell-style X-factor: it’s simply marvelous. I wonder what the local policy is for one sleeping, Lust-drunk, in one’s car. Best not to find out, I suppose. But it’s tempting. Really tempting.
