A slightly more malt-forward version of the Thunderbeast, this beer still packs a ton of citrus and tropical fruits into the nose, but has a lightly sweet, malty backbone that provides a very balanced drinking experience. Brewed with Falconer’s Flight hops, a portion of the sales of these hops go to the Glen Falconer Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to furthering the craft beer community by providing educational scholarships to brewers.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours reddish brown with a modest off-white head and a toasty aroma. There is a fruity smoked malt flavor with balancing hop bitterness. Fun to drink.

hayduke (4629) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass amber with an off white cap of foam. Nose of rich malts. Medium in body. Flavor is more malts that hops but over all very tasty. Lightly bitter malty finish. Tastes pretty good.

not very ipa like anymore. not slightly maltier than Thunderbeast (an average or so ipa)...more red than IPA. where’s the hops? not a terrible beer, but definitely not what I like in this style. boring.

Reddish brown in color... Aroma if caramel, toffee, light fruity hops... Fairly caramel forward, some bitter notes on finish, ok at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
