Notes: "We brewed this beer to commemorate a classic moustache and celebrate facial hair in general. Coincidentally, Magnum is also a variety of hop, which we used in abundance. Thanks to our good friend Mission Joe who provided the recipe, as well as a Hawaiian shirt and his own moustache."

Pours a half finger of tan head over a cloudy brown copper liquid. Smells hoppy. Cap'n Crunch Crunch-berry cereal, clean grapefruit pith, lemony, and mildly of oranges.

Tastes a potent irish red ale with strong hop flavor, decent hop bitter and a smooth mouthfeel, a bit like it's got oatmeal. Pretty simple overall and could use a bit more hop bite. Hop flavor comes across as berry and orange with mild pine. Mouthfeel is light with a creaminess that's wonderful. Moderate, but stingy fine carbonation helps clean off the palatte. Some grassy and wood in the aftertaste. Decent drinkability, but not hop bittered enough for the style.
