On tap @ Sante Adairius. Clear golden pour with soapy white foam. There is a lot of pungent grapefruit and orange to the nose. A nice hint of sweet tropical fruits, mainly mango. A touch of caramel malts. There’s a ton of citrus zest. A nice bit of bitter grass and pine. Good grapefruit and orange peel. A little resinous on the finish. Nicely done.

Tap at the brewery near Santa Cruz. Snifter glass. Deep golden with white head. Aroma of citrus particularly grapefruit and an earthiness. Taste has some floral and bitter characteristics packed with plenty of citrus flavors. Smooth and approachable. Right in the wheelhouse of the style. Bite at the end. First beer I’ve tried from them and pretty impressed overall.

Draft at brewery. Slightly cloudy gold. Nose of lightly dank and garlicy hops, tropical fruit, New Zealand sav blanc (cat piss). Dry and lean but body carries it fine. Some light pineapple, slighty mineral, with some green hops. No hint of the ABV. Loved it.

On tap at Ratebeer Gallery III. Pours ds rk gold with a frothy white head. Aroma has an acidic grapefruit mustiness plus a nice resinous leafiness. Flavor bursts with grapefruit and pineapple, delves toward weedy dank resin, flushes with a delicate vanilla maltiness, then finishes pithy and bitter. Maybe their best hoppy beer.

Half pour at the brewery – reviewed from notes. Aroma has light tropical fruit like mango and passion fruit, but heavy on the pine and citrus: grapefruit rinds, slightly herbal, hop spice, weeds and maybe even slightly catty as it warmed up. It is a pretty crazy resinous, danky aroma that almost felt like it could burn my nose hairs off. The beer pours cloudy light orange with sporadic bubble patches around the top of the liquid. Eventually they settled out to small ring around the sides. Taste has moderate sweet grain, light straw and dough at first and then you are immediately smacked in the face with grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit and mango. The fruit character is short before turning into a very resinous bite. The hop oils are strong on this one and completely coats the mouth with drying bitterness. The body is surprisingly thin compared to other hoppy Sante beers. Light body that doesn’t really support the huge danky flavors, with medium-high carbonation and drying finish. The aftertaste has moderate bitterness and light astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall a pretty huge DIPA with a nice farmhouse/rustic grain component. Although the body is pretty light, the finish is dry and crisp.

Tap at RateBeer Gallery III. Pours very hazy gold with a white head. Rather fruity aroma. Med body. Flavor is reasonably dank - with a little sweet fruit. Mostly dry and quite hoppy. Tasty too.

On tap at Ratebeer Gallery 3. Pours murky blonde with a tiny off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied bitter hoppy flavor I mean seriously bitter.

Tap at sante. Slightly hazy orange copper color. Base of tropical fruits with some cat urine tang. Nice bitterness, resinous and metallic at turns. Leaves the mouth dry. Enjoyable brew on balance, but i like the start more than the finish.
