If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. But are you crazy enough? Show those guys that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the human sprit is still alive. Mosaic. Citra. Centennial. Columbus. Lots of barley. Touch of wheat. The sea swallows the Sun. And who knows if it rises again. Vaya con dios.

Poured into a snifter. Very hazy but not turbid. Bright golden color. Modest white head. Big aroma with tropical fruit, pineapple, and dank resin. The taste followed. Bitterness up from that faded into softness. Mango, papaya, pineapple, and resin. Bright flavors. Medium bodied and easy to drink. Outstanding.

Pale straw yellow and hazy. There's a fingernail of off white around the rim and covering most of the rim. It smell a lot like orange juice with some tropical fruit mixed in. I'm definitely tasting more tropical fruit with some melon, citrus, and mango. The mouth is lightly resinous and lightly sticky.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit and toasted caramel. Bitter piney hop bite with a citrusy kick and a sweet caramel/toffee finish.

Hazy golden in color,not murky. Fruity but not super juicy in my opinion. Light bitterness but finishes relatively smooth. It’s worth a try but I’ve had much better for sure

One of my absolute fave go to beers. Endlessly drinkable. If don’t wanna do a DIPA, do a surf wax. Anyone else notice that it’s gotten a touch hazier and slightly sweeter? I almost miss that bitter bite at the end. Either way if u see it drink it! Asheville baby!

American (slightly wheated) IPA brewed with Mosaic, Centennial, Citra, and Columbus. Poured from a can into a Rhinegeist tulip. The pour is light gold in color, hazy, and sports about a finger of white foam. Very fruity, juicy nose. Lots of fresh pineapple, orange, peach, mango, and lemon.

Medium-light body with a firm feel and a bright, citrusy flavor. Some cracker-like notes up front, a little marmalade, and fresh fruit up front. The hops produce soft bitterness and very pleasant tropical fruit flavors of lemon, pineapple, apricot, and mango. Dies a little in the back of the palate, but no off flavors or grating astringency. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Really wish I had bought more.
