A thick and full mouthfeel creaste an Orange Whip-like profile that sticks to the palate with a refreshingly dessert-esque fervor, slowly giving way to a soft bite of carbonation.

Video Amageddon

IPA

7/21/2020

6.6% ABV

A super crushable format ripe with a bouquet of citrus. Aromas of overripe fruit that twists into orange juice, grapefruit peel, lemongrass, and black lime. Pungent, creamy, and drenched in citrus with a nose that lingers.

Paradise Heights

SH Westcoast IPA

7/18/2020

7% ABV

The perfect level of bitterness, sharp, present, but wholly unobtrusive and fades quickly into a unique resinous character. Saturated in notes of mango, apricot preserves, Riesling wine grapes, tangerines, and quite a bit of diesel in the aroma.

Southside Sunrise

IPA

7/17/2020

7% ABV

With a deep and hazy orange glow and heavy aromas of fresh orange slices, Carricante wine grapes, passionfruit, and kumquats, this soft, pillowy, and delectably juicy IPA has a mouthfeel that is perfectly balanced to be increasingly crushable while still maintaining its juicy nature.

Tart of Gold

Kettle Sour Ale

7/9/2020

7.6% ABV

First sniff brings bright notes of Asian pear, white grapefruit, and apples. A mild to moderate acidity washes over the palate followed by a blend of white grapes that coats the palate with wine-induced flavors of peach skins, passionfruit, lime, pineapple, and lychee.

Shoreline

West Coast IPA

7/9/2020

6.6% ABV

Huge upfront notes of sweet ruby red grapefruit and fruit punch dominate the aroma profile. Next comes a complex blend of notes consisting of honeydew melon, jackfruit, and red gummy bears. An ample amount of oats lends a pleasant oily mouthfeel and body while the wealth of hop character sits on the palate, marinates on your tongue, and then slyly blends with mild malt notes of berries and granola. Overwhelming in hop character, infinitely fruity and juicy, all with a subtle bitterness.

Hazy Train

IPA

7/9/2020

6.9% ABV

Pale in color with a blizzard of haze, the flavor is weighed down heavily with fresh cut start fruit, honeydew melon, grapefruit. The slightly velvety mouthfeel makes all those flavors merge and play together.

Glowing Giants

DIPA

7/9/2020

8.5% ABV

Super pungent and overripe fruit aromas with tropical and citrus and a nose that is packed with orange juice, pineapple chunks, passionfruit, lime zest, and red grapes. Not as sweet as most Double IPAs its size and really relaxed on malt character, the Del Monte-like fruit cocktail nature of this beast hits all corners of the palate.

IPA

6.8% ABV

"Pure Dole" is the only way we can describe its boisterous nose of juicy pineapple, bright mandarin oranges and Lemonheads. This IPA pours as thick as honey with a full mouthfeel that is balanced out with a mild bitterness. This soft and juicy pineapple and orange bomb is already one of our favorites.

Hammock Beer

Summer Lager

7/1/2020

4.6% ABV

A Baja inspired Lager taking a classic Mexican Lager grain bill and brewing it with a small wallop of Motueka hops and a light dry hopping of Motueka and a pinch of Sabro hops. These hops litter this super crisp and crushable Lager with notes of lime-blossom, coconut, and oak.

Citrus and cream with a hefty body that sits on the palate like vanilla soft serve and huge aromas of orange juice, grapefruit flesh, and pomelos this Double IPA puts off some major sherbet vibes without any of the pesky dairy or fruit of course.

7/1/2020

13.5% ABV

Aromas of American Whiskey and oak, with notes of cocoa, vanilla, and charred toffee. Flavors of rhy whiskey, dark chocolate, and tranditional porter, with a second wave of burnt sugar and complex mineral notes from the Treacle, Italian Licorice Juice adding dry and slightly astringent notes, followed lastly by toasted marshmallow contributed by the White Ash and vanilla beans.

Magic Valley

IPA

7/1/2020

6.6% ABV

Mosaic notes of tropical fruit and citrus are amplified to 10 and meld perfectly with the hints of honeydew melon and Sprite we are getting from this year of Bru-1 hops. For 6.6% this one has loads of body but is still really light on malt character and sweetness making it into a fruit salad-like smoothie.

Hugo

French Table Beer/Saison

6/24/2020

4.6% ABV

All French malts, yeast, and hops. A blend of French Pilsner, Munich, and Special Aromatic malts give Hugo a nice bready malt character that makes this beer as enjoyable as belly rubs on a Sunday morning. In this updated version we decided to swap in Barbe Rouge hops from the Alsace region of France that provide a super unique and delicate profile of red currants, honeysuckle, and citrus blossoms.

Losers' Club Vol. VI

DIPA

6/24/2020

9% ABV

This high ABV hop monster finishes drier than our typical Double IPA but you wouldn't know from the lovely body from that higher alcohol. This lays a perfect bed for what is a megaphone of new-world hop flavors consisting of blueberries, honeydew, passionfruit, mango, and sweet ruby red grapefruit.

Pulp

IPA

6/24/2020

6.9% ABV

PULP is what happens when we take our Pulp Free Westcoast IPA, drop the bittering additions and package it without any fining agents, leaving it turbid and creamy. Using a slightly more fruit-focused yeast strain this IPA kicks-off complimentary yeast esters of over-ripe peaches falling from the tree that pair perfectly with its hops. While none of our beers are ever filtered, PULP exemplifies this with the appearance of an opaque monster that adds a nice juicy mouthfeel to the beer, making it stick to the palate in an aggressive nature. The abundance of Citra hops create an aromatic bombardment that smells like a Sunday drive through a citrus orchard in peak of season; with notes of fresh orange, yellow grapefruit, and juicy sweet mango trekking from the first sniff to the last sip. PULP delivers just what we want, pure juicy hop deliciousness in its most natural of forms.

Faded Lanterns

IPA

6/17/2020

8.7% ABV

In true Enigma hop fashion we have tried this beer multiple times and it is different each time. This hop seemingly continues to morph back and forth between fresh squeezed and bright tangerine and lime juice notes to overly ripe and sticky notes of papaya, mango, and orangewine. While hard to lasso-in, Enigma still proves to be one of our favorite hops with an intensity in its finish that lingers from sip to sip and plays perfectly with the lime zest and citrus nature of this crop year's Motueka.

Endless Visions

American Pilsner

6/17/2020

With the beginning of summer arriving, Pilsner season is upon us and Endless Visions is the American Pilsner we've been waiting for. While some dry-hopped lagers can be overwhelmingly hoppy, we decided to add a pinch of restraint and balance to give this Pilsner a beautiful aroma of pomelo, berries, lemon zest, and blooming flower blossoms. The perfect amount of bitterness paired with a crisp dry finish of crackery American grown barley makes Endless Visions an excellent beer for showcasing new-school hops in a Pilsner form factor.

Banter Lord

DIPA

6/17/2020

Long in body and short in bitterness, Banter Lord is the perfect balance of northern hemisphere citrus and southern hemisphere sticky overripe topical fruits. With very little bitterness to speak of and a balanced but full mouthfeel this Double IPA may already be one of our favorites and should probably be making the starting line-up moving forward.

Juice Crusher

DIPA

6/17/2020

9% ABV

We built this moderately over sized double dry-hopped Double IPA with two of our favorite hops to brew with every year, El Dorado and Blanc. Two hops that are equally juicy but on opposite ends of the flavor spectrum, when paired atop a light and fluffy grainbill create a complex flavor profile soaked in notes of papaya, yuzu, chenin blanc grapes, and a good ol' fashioned citrus punch from one of them cardboard freezer tube thingies.

Westcoast IPA

While quite a bit different from the Mickey’s grenades that usually filled our coolers this batch is just as citrusy as previously but with an even more intense aroma and hoppy resinous mouthfeel that reminds us a lot of our favorite IPA(s) to come out of San Diego.

Pirate Smiles

Kettle Sour

6/11/2020

6% ABV

Not sure the last time we were this excited with how a kettle sour came out. Pirate Smiles was brewed with Rio Red grapefruit, tart red cherries, limes, coconut, and lemongrass; and if that sounds like too many things you'd be wrong. All these flavors land perfectly in balance with each-other with the grapefruit starting things off and melding into a devious mid-palate of tart cherries, coconut, and limes that mix on the tastebuds like a well shaken cocktail until it finishes with a nice sweeping profile of bright and herbaceous lemongrass. With an extremely dry finish and more acidity than sweetness Pirate Smiles is the perfect beer for us to celebrate this much needed break in the clouds.

Dreaming In Neon

IPA

6/11/2020

6.7% ABV

Exciting, new, and steeped in the tropics Dreaming In Neon is a laser beam of East Asian flavors with fresh squeezed notes of passionfruit, yuzu, kumquat and papaya. Delicate notes of lemongrass and floral citrus round out this IPA that balances juiciness with drinkability perfectly while showcasing a couple of our favorite new hops.
