COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vallejo, an India Pale Ale we brewed with coastal spirit. This 6.7% hop crasher sharply dives into the very deep waters of bitter beers.

Thanks for the Growler guys! Aroma is killer! Maybe the best or 2nd best nose I’ve had on a HA. Simcoe and Nelson play so nice together! Flavor is bright, mostly piney simcoe, with a touch of grapey nelson, somewhat hollow finish, ultra dry, moderately bitter, crazy good as is, but would be even better at 5% ABV in the summer heat! Excellent work here.

Aroma is a mix of citrus, pine, hops and fruit. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit, biscuit malts, hops/slight hop resin and a bitter/dryish finish.

Daisy cutter was my favorite but this might have eclipsed that. Very solid ups with lots of flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours from a can a hazy light gold. (My wife described it as urine color.) Huge nose - grapefruit, citrus. Taste has some grapefruit up front but moves to a hop bomb with lots of bitterness very quickly. It's good, and I would have again from time to time - but not a beer to drink regularly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finhead (1533) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2016
Hazy, yellow-gold with a white head. The aroma a big dose of grass and more minor herbal hops. It has a light body with slightly oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with quick, easy finish.

TattooJack (428) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2016
Poured from three 4-packs of cans purchased in the last coupla days, I think I got a pretty good taste of this one and the taste is good, nice and light, slam-able, citrus, I don’t know where this Vallejo place is but I think I need to plan my next vacation around it.

DocLock (9243) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2016
Pounder (in the) can from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy golden with frothy, white head. Nose is that Maine/Vermont IPA smell, that honeydew, pineapple, grapefruit, resiny, floral hop aroma. Tastes hoppy, floral, with notes of mango, honeydew, pineapple, and a super smooth finish. Great!
