According to the liner notes, the aim with this West Coast IPA Is to capture "the magic of the twilight zone when the sun hits just right in the late afternoon". Given the brewery is run by touring musicians and surfers, they'll no doubt have experienced such moments gazing upon – or from – a festival stage or on a quiet beach, when said magic is amplified to ever greater levels.
Such a classic moment is represented by a pretty classically-minded IPA. It leads off with citrus rind and pineapple then turns more earthy and dank before a deep and lingering bitterness that's just like a spoonful of Olde English marmalade – albeit wrapped in a very lightly caramelly, mouth filling maltiness – settles in. Ready, one assumes, to soak up the glory of another sunset.
