Before the Flash – West Coast Rye IPA
Do you remember beer from BEFORE THE FLASH? Those easy-drinking hop bombs with dry bodies, balanced bitterness, and ultra-refreshing carbonation? Well, we do, and we decided to smash the rewind button. Welcome a 7.4% San Diego Mountain-Style West Coast Rye IPA that’s Nelson-forward with Citra, Strata, and Cashmere hops just around the bend. It pours slightly unfiltered with a light, golden hue and dense white foam. Those punchy hop aromatics allow pungent tropical notes of lychee, mango, and passionfruit before being followed by hits of cannabis and rye. Fruit-forward flavors of melon, gooseberry, and peach scratch those classic hop note itches before a final finish of a dry sauv blanc. Let’s revisit the mountain and drink a little history.
