My first Waimea hopped beer thus far, This is Your Brain on Hops beckons me back to days of yore, when hops were appreciated for their bitterness just as much as their soft and juicy qualities. But, this fella is also pretty unfilted - it's thick, rich, and opaque, and it IS juicy as well - a bit sharp, quite bitter, and very delicious. I like this one a lot - it's like they've picked and chose my favorite qualities in an IPA. Admittedly, those qualities aren't all complementary - so it's definitely unique.

But it's damn fine.

Pours a hazy orange with a one inch white head that left ample lacing. Smells of tropical and citrus fruits along with pine. Tastes of tangerine, peach, pineapple and pine. Medium bodied and carbonated, slightly dry and mildly bitter finish.

From the can:
Look: like a pineapple juice bomb!
Smell: like a pineapple juicebomb ! (Seriously!)
Taste: like a pineapple..... OK ok ok enough.. LOL! The citrus and yes pineapple and hops.
No BS, everything you want in a hoppy juice bomb. NO DDH here, just drinkable NE style IPA goodness.
Feel: PRIVATE PRIVATE PRIVATE!
Overall...
Another greate brew from. The double secret SHHH hush hush, Kings County Brewers Collective.

So quiet, so humble (OK maybe not so humble, they ARE Brewers you know ... GAH!)
And but their own words. A “Collective”... whatever that means..........

And thats my review.
And yes, if i see it again, I will purchase.
