The arrival of Power Plant heralds the beginning of Triple IPA season each year! No stranger to high-octane West Coast IPAs that are never unbalanced despite their heftier malt-bill (see: Hammerland), El Segundo has slotted itself snugly into an annual tradition. This year’s iteration sees a can-redesign with eye-catching bold swathes of red and white, bookended by jagged black lightening bolts indicating a high-voltage drinking experience.
Humble Sea continues to amaze with three to five new releases each and every week (!). About once a month however, they drop a hazy Triple IPA in limited quantities, and it is always fascinating to witness a few select die-hard customers who seek out those cans above all. Live, Laugh, Fog boasts a medley of varietals, with highly aromatic Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy and Cashmere in the mix. Getting the jump on Valentine’s Day, the can-art has a pastel-pink heart in the background and loopy cursive writing spelling out the title.
