A delish 10.5% ABV hazy triple IPA from the fine folks at Pure Project. At only 50 IBU it finishes a bit sweeter than I prefer, but I’m suffering through it just fine.
Strong nose of sweet vanilla and coconut. Flavor matches the nose, but has a mild hop bitterness in the sweet finish. I kept sipping and asking myself what I was tasting…then it was gone.

We enjoyed the taster we received when we picked up Michele’s bottle.
Greatly enjoying Amplified’s new 4.5% ABV session IPA.
Last time we were here it was Manzanita. R to L, Right Here Right Now, Got Anything Hazy II, Guava Tart and Cream Ale. Both RHRN double IPA, clocking in at 9.1% ABV, and the unfiltered IPA made with guava and pineapple, clocking in at 6.9% ABV, were decent enough. Can’t say the same for […]
Scottish ale brewed with black tea gives this a unique taste. Scottish ales are usually too dry and syrupy for me on the brown side because of the carmelization, but the tea factor makes a good offset. 21st amendment gave a place to its brewing competition participants and chose this as a finalist. The brewers’ […]
Mango, papaya, and pineapple imperial IPA. Named after a mountain in California. If you dumped a tub of Trader Joe’s Mango Papaya Salsa into a vat of Ballast Point and increase the Alc by Volume to 9%. This is what you’d get.
