22oz bomber c/o Elise. Slightly hazy orange-tan. Foamy white head. Pretty solid NW IPA. Lots of hop depth. There is some nice hop depth..pine,citrus, straw, and a hint of mellow tropical fruit. Great mouthfeel, just an all around enjoyable, well-crafted IPA.

hayduke (5032) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Pours a nearly clear amber with a beige head and decent lacing. Nose is pine and citrus hops on caramel malts. Medium plus body and a smooth clean mouthfeel. The flavor is earthy, citrus, pine, and caramel. Very good balance. Finish is a perfect bitterness. This is a very easy drinking and simply delicious beer. This is also number 4000 for strykzone. What could be better?
