Chaotic is the seasonal release we just couldnt let go of. A hop aficionado’s dream with so many additions that we had to redesign our brew logs to fit them all in. The light gold pour has a slight haze that betrays the extensive dry-hopping in each batch. This onslaught tags the entire spectrum of hop aromatics with an especially notable citrus medley including grapefruit and tangelo. Brewed by San Diego hopheads for San Diego hopheads, Chaotic is captivatingly so. Double dry-hopped for a huge hop aroma that includes Pine, Tangerine and Grapefruit. Great beer for first time IPA drinkers and seasoned hop heads. Medium-full body and a balancing sweetness help keep the high ABV in line. Hops: Chinook, Cascade, Columbus, Centennial. Malt: 2-Row Barley, Dextrin Malt.
