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.

A: The beer pours a clear, light amber color with a dense white head, and sticky lacing. S: A very intense nose. Lots of pineapple fruitiness and plenty more piney hops. There’s a moderate grapefruit aroma, along with mild herbal notes and sweet tropical fruits. Overall a really dank hop character. T: The flavor is very heavy on the pine. Plenty of perfume with grapefruit, pineapple, and floral hop flavors. There is a decent amount of bitterness to it and only a touch of malt sweetness. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation and a little bit of bitterness on the finish. O: A nice IPA, here. Perhaps not as good as Melrose, but definitely something you could have a glass or two of.

Man Jullian can brew the shit outta some beer! Pours a nice gold color with a fluffy white head. Tons of hops bursting in the aroma, citrus, resin, floral, spicy, earthy. Wow. Flavor is just juicy and perfectly bitter. Just a hint of caramel to keep this from going bitter crazy.

GT2 (7898) - Carlsbad, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap at Toronado SD. Pours a low haze, light orange. Weak head formation. Nose is puppy breath, orange rind, orange gummies. Taste is spicy, boozy, thick cantaloupe, peppercorn. Palate is very thick and nutty...heavy. Too chewy with mild paper in the finish. Small chemical off flavor. Needs some work.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 On tap (multiple glasses) at Blue Palms 3rd Anniversary. Pours with a clear golden hued body and a small white head that lasts for the duration. Huge citrusy notes, dank, tropical fruit, grapefruit, resin. Minimal malt aromas. Flavors are dank, papaya, citrus, and tropical fruit. All about the hops. Bitter balance, floral, bursting with flavor and aroma. Lively bubbles, dry with a medium lingering bitterness. Very tasty! Second batch is even an improvement on the first!

Dogbrick (7244) - 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.

(Draught at the brewpub) clear gold, lasting creamy white bubbles, great lacing too. Nose of pine, mango skin, pretty green in general. Taste is very resiny, pine, green, oily body, nice bitter linger.
