Notes: Animated nature features a heavy hitting grain bill loaded to the max with flaked wheat and oats, then fermented with our fruit Forward house yeast. To give this beer our signature hop treatment, we crammed the fermentor full with 4lbs per barrel of the freshest Amarillo, Mosaic, and Loral and then Double dry Hopped it with the same trio.

With a bold creamy mouthfeel and lower IBU, this DIPA showcases huge aromas of tangerine pulp and zippy lemon zest, with prominent flavors of candied papaya and fruit cocktail.

Pours a hazy orange with fine, off-white head.

Smell is citrusy and piney with some resiny notes as well as tangerine and orange peel.

Taste is fruity and quite intense. Notes of pine, grapefruit, lemon peel and some herbal hints as well. Solid bitterness, and quite dry on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and oilowy with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nice, nuanced west coast IPA. Bitter, but not overpowering.

On draft, Loosa Brews.

Hazy, fairly dark-hued golden color. Some soft, creamy head settles around the ring of the beer nicely; decent lace retention.

Aromatic nose; melon, underripe papaya, candied lemon. Hops are piney and floral, not overbearing but there to balance the zippy, fruity predominance.

Getting a lot of Loral influence on the palate. Floral/herbaceous backbone, with notes of overripe papaya, cantaloupe, tangerine, and dank, piney hops on the tail.

Smooth drinking, medium-bodied. Carb is fairly low and soft, with a mild amount of warm booze in the finish.
