COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thrillseeker is a "West Coast-style" India pale ale that is sure to push your senses to the edge. It starts with a base of American 2-row malt and a restrained dose of extra light caramel malt to let the hops punch though. It’s then generously hopped with Chinook, Summit, Centennial, and Simcoe for a massive citrus and tropical hop profile. Thrillseeker is dry hopped with Simcoe and Chinook for an über fresh resiny aroma.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2013
This brew is a clear dark golden color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and caramel. The finish is moderately bitter with a hops and grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

bytemesis (2610) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear butterscotch with a medium off-white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, floral, and pine, not too strong. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and quite bitter. Light body, oily mouthfeel. Not overwhelmed, but not bad either.

joet (2056) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 18, 2013
White foam, beautiful packaging (bottle label), deep golden color, slightly resinous interface. Low medium carbonation. Pine and grass aromas ride back seat to abundant grapefruit with a pineapple twist. Substantial malt backbone by comparison to a host of the drier regional IPAs. Semi dry. Finishes with an herbal bitter bite. Alcohol slightly apparent there in a peppery zip. An interesting stroll down the now broad and well beaten IPA path.

revolverlbc (22) - California, USA - APR 13, 2013
A super well rounded IPA. A complex weaving of hops on the nose and tongue. Drink this beer cold and by itself. Delicious.

JoeTheYounger (1127) - Claremont, California, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle from House Of Spirits in Monrovia. This beer poured a beautiful clear orange pour with a big white bubbly head. Aroma is freaking awesome with notes of citrus, caramel, and fruity hops. Taste is initially super fruity and sticky with an onslaught of hops hitting the back of your palate. Finishes dry with some caramel malt flavor to keep it from getting too bitter. Wow this is a phenomenal IPA.

ADfan (538) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
On tap it has a golden amber color with a small head. The aroma is floral with herbs and hops. Taste has pine and a grapefruit bite. Hoppiness comes through in the end wth more citrus. Nice tangy beer.

Tap. Pours clear dark gold to orange with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing.

Medium body and moderate carbonation.

madvike (2588) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear amber with a ring of white head. Smells of citrus peel, Christmas tree, and some onion/dank/cat pee hops. Pretty well-balanced malt. Tastes a little more fruity than the smell, with a blend of citrus, grass, and pine. Finishes long and bitter. Well-carbonated and maybe a bit too sharp.
