Water profile akin to HF, and rare.

This pours a golden orange with white, cloudy foam. There’s a vibrant and zesty aroma of orange and grapefruit peel. Some piney goodness and a rounded bitterness come across. There’s layers of candied citrus peel mixed with marmalade on the finish. It’s an amazing, dynamic, layered IPA. Thought it was utterly fantastic and wishing it was a growler fill option as I would have loved to spend some more time sipping it.

This is a fantastic IPA. Well balanced, good amount of hops with a dry finish

This beer feels misunderstood to me. It's very much in the style of the Vermot/East Coast IPA but tastes pretty drastically different because of the Santa Cruz water. It hash a minerality unlike any IPA I've ever had. Not traditional at all, but since when was that something beer nerds cared about?

This is a very good, hoppy IPA. Pours a nice deep golden brown. Lots of Columbia hops (danky) bitter on the mid palette with a nice finish.

The go to beer for Sante. I am a big fan of this brewer. Every thing is hand crafted and delicious. Have not had a bad beer from this place.
