A Note on This Beer
A Bounty of Hops: This tasty tempest delivers a galleon’s worth of Mosaic, Rakau, and Columbus Hops! Sail the Sea of Juice: Great gusts of guava aroma tantalize the senses before tangy tangerine and ruby red grapefruit flavors boil up from the depths. Hints of ripe berry and drippy peach swirl through the juicy maelstrom, giving way to a whisper of pithy bitterness.
Today’s fruitful brew comes from two of the best beer buccaneers to ever sail the northeastern seas: New York’s Barrier Brewing and Massachusetts’ Vitamin Sea. That’s like Captain Jack Sparrow teaming up with The Dread Pirate Roberts!
Just last year, the Barrier crew took home top honors in the New England IPA category at the Best Brews of New York Competition, beating out some of the Empire State’s best breweries.
And Vitamin Sea’s Hazies are more legendary than the mighty Kraken — Hop Culture even named them the Best Brewery of 2019!
Together, they crafted a swirling sea of dank and tropical juice that hides monstrous citrus flavors! But, you won’t find it on any map; these are Uncharted Waters! Only the craftiest captains can navigate to this buried treasure of a brew.
If you manage to snag some, every First Mate, swab, and privateer you know will want to scour your beer fridge for a taste.
