It's only fitting to have beer #3,000 during my first visit to one of my favorite breweries in the world. As with all of their IPAs with crazy ingredients, this beer was a testament to how much restraint they show when they brew. None of these ingredients overpower, or try to make it something it's not. They just add some interesting enhancements to make it incredibly unique.

Filled up a 32-oz growler from Tired Hands on 5/6/16 at the brew cafe. Drank with some tacos on a Friday night.

The beer pours a hazy opaque bright yellow - looks like grapefruit juice. Smells of lime pulp & zest upfront with citrus hops & notes of light tropical fruit. Some of the spice peak through such as the chiles and cumin. Perhaps a dashed coriander.

Tastes dry with citrus hop sweetness and lime juice. Chiles are very evident as the beer warms. Spices are more subdued.

Very unique & refreshing beer. Alcohol well in check.

Reviewed from notes. Growler shared by someone in the crew - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy yellow under a 1/4-inch thick white head with fades quickly to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Mango sherbet, spices, citrus fruit (lemon/lime, grapefruit), floral, herbal overtones.

T: Complex and nice blend of citrus, peppery spices, herbal, fruity, mild sweetish malts, grainy.

M: Moderate body and medium (growler) carbonation. Finishes with a lingering citrus and peppery spice.

O: Unique and very creative, nicely done.
