BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Modern Times Beer
California, United States
moderntimesbeer.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Protocosmos combines the crazy, fruity awesomeness of Australian Galaxy hops with the bright, citrusy qualities of American Ahtanum & Centennial hops. The dry, cracker-like malt body is super-saturated with hop flavor & aroma, allowing you to revel in the diggity dankness of these absurdly expensive hops without any sweetness to harsh your mellow.

Protocosmos is named after an insane underground world described by Casanova (yup, that one) featuring multi-colored humanoids, strangely small flying horses, and fruit-eating serpents.

(Nov 2016, 22oz, Long Beach) Very light in color with a pretty obvious potlike aroma. Pretty dry without much maltiness. Becomes a bit one dimensional pretty quickly. Decent effort, 2.9

On tap at Homestyle Hawaiian. Got a bad pour with no head at all, but swirling later produced some reasonable cream foam, so I can't really dock them here. Color was a watery gold, mostly clear. Nose was a bit light, but had bright citrus and a slight dankness. Taste was crisp and clean, with mostly a tangerine citrus hop influence. Nicely rounded bitterness with a cracker malt backing. A solid all-round IPA that isn't setting pushing boundaries.

This pours a hazy gold color with light foaming. There's a light aroma that stays hidden as it warms. The flavor is juicy, with a pleasant orange citrus character that opens as it warms.

Bottled 6/24/16. Had to pour into a little plastic glass at the hotel but still had a decent head and nice orange tint. Mellow aroma not too hoppy. Clean taste and enjoyed but they have much better IPAs.
