Brewed by:
Cellarmaker Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Chinook and Sterling. The Mosaic and Citra hops shine in this beer giving off awesome flavors of tropical fruit and various stonefruits. The Chinook and Sterling back up the fruity flavors with pine, spice and earth. This one is lighter on bitterness than most of ours and is somewhat of an old school meets new school IPA. Hope you guys enjoy

Growler thanks to familynight (reddit)

Pours a nice creamy fluffy 1 finger head that fades at a slow pace, nice lacing too, pretty clear mango yellow-orange color golden hue. 4.25

Nose is pretty nice, resinous to start, citrus hops mostly, with some floral notes, faint lemon rind and zest, mild candied orange, and some mild tropical citrus, semi fruity, little spicy,. and a decent fluffy sweet like malt underneath. Really unique passion fruit guava citrus skin rind mustiness, really interesting. 425

Taste starts with that weird citrus musty resinous flavor, a weird fermented guava tropical like notes, quickly into grapefruit pith and citrus rind, resinous, plenty of rind and zest, a little generic tropical notes, and a creamy orange, into some grassy slight spicy zesty hops. Then creamy fluffy malts, fluffy chewy and mild sweet malts. Finish is dry-ish, mild sticky malt, nice bitterness with more resin, musty like tropical fruit mustiness, and some orange peel and pith lingering. 4

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy feel, decent carb. 4.25

Overall pretty nice, good tropical notes, lots of nice musty dank resinous characters, nice bitterness, good malt balance and base, quite enjoyable. 4.25

Pours a clear, beautiful, golden-honey-orange, very little head that dissipates quickly leaving some nice lacing along the glass. Aroma comes off as fantastic tropical fruits and pine. Taste comes through with juicy tropical fruit up front followed by some citrus and piney earthiness in the back. Another outstanding IPA from Cellarmaker!
