COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hurricane Deck IPA is an aggressive IPA designed with hopheads in mind. We blend four hops, Columbus, Centennial, Chinook and Cascade, to recreate the ruggedness and intensity of the Trail. The higher alcohol content and skillful use of specialty malts emphasize the clean, crisp hop character.

Achilleos (11) - Santa Maria, California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Good head on the beer with a very pungent odor that some may find unappealing. Very hoppy in taste and powerful as well. A good beer for people that get drunk off 2-3 beers and just want to sip through it. Still something I would drink with a dinner meal of steak or tri-tip.

On tap at the Brewery during a tour with Kara, Andy and Patty. Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white head. Lots of hop. Resin, floral, citrus. Med body. Flavor is very hoppy. Citrus, resin and I think floral. It’s bitter as all get out. Oh, there’s some light roast caramel backbone. This finishes slightly dry and bitter, but not quite so harsh as many.

I had this one at the brewery. This was probably my favorite I had this day. A sweet and hoppy aroma. Flavor is bold, lots of hops. Alcohol is masked.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clearish honey gold with a nice three finger off white head. Tat work lacing. The aroma is classic west coast hops but is not quite a prominent as some. The flavor is pretty much the same. Big complex fruit with citrus that includes grapefruit, pine, and tropical. A resiny feel is slick but smooth. Some floral and honey notes. It became sugary at the finish. This is an enjoyable and tasty beer. But for an 8% ABV beer I kept hoping it would go BANG on the flavor.

hayduke (4921) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured clear copper. White head. Pine, citrus, and floral hop nose. Medium body. Very resinous mouth feel. Flavor is a lot of hops with pine strong, then the citrus and floral. The finish is very pine bitter. Overall classic west coast IPA. A little alcohol shows up at the end as well along with some earth. Could have done without that alcohol showing up but generally a good beer.

RedSox2004 (1672) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Cloudy amber orange with an off-white head and moderate lace. Piney hops intrude on a base of caramel malt with some citrus and grassy notes. Bitterness rules in the flavor profile, with generous pine and citrus hops, caramel malt and a hint of alcohol. Full body, medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a lingering caramel in the finish.

SlimHabib (405) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle pour. Hazy dark copper with a good size soapy white head. Aroma is floral hops, nuts, citrus, and a little alcohol. Medium body. Salty with a slight bitter finish.

GABF 2015. On cask, with citra. Cloudy orange color and white head. Aroma is dry hops, flavor more hops, dry, malt takes a back seat but the palate is thick and I expected more malt presence. Solid. I think it benefited from cask.

Very hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and has a fine crispness. Sweetish malts, trace of lactose, mild malt cream. Hops bring tangerine and tangerine peel. Mild crystallised fruits. Hop spice and modest floral bitterness. Tangy finish leads to a bitter linger. Decent.

22 bomber to cervoise. Pours deep clear amber, tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, earth and slight citrus. Taste is very malt forward with some hints of pine, nut, grass, dark malts, some cocoa and slight orange marmalade. Not a very hoppy taste or finish. Not very bitter either.
