I enjoyed the peach flavour but overall it was kinda bland. Doesn't really drink like an IPA.

The Gose with Guava is delicious despite having less salt than expected.

I'm pretty meh on No. 6 as well. I'd rather not see any fruit, sour, lactose etc. type beers in this series but hey, I'm not the brewer. I want beers that are solidly in the "trad" IPA category (i.e. hoppy). Loved no. 5. If I had my druthers I'd love to see them do a triple IPA for the winter months. Something in the 11-12% ABV range in a 355 ml can.

FYI - Radio the Mothership Imperial IPA is now in a 355 ml can.

Available at the brewery is:

Hot Pink Brut IPA brewed with Hallertau Blanc and Vic Secret Hops.

I bought some Saturday, but haven't tried it yet.

I'll be clearing space in my fridge, And liver. Maybe I just won't drink in Jan 2019.


That post was Jan '18 in reference to Feb '19? Regardless, would be smart for them to convert successful numbered brews to regular ones.

To echo a comment made earlier, Collective Arts has been killer, but on a slow downhill since IPA 5... I'm sure some of that is seasonality and expansion outside of the US, but curious to see what innovations are coming up soon.

Oh FFS... I bet you the #5 was simply not enough return on investment. Materials and the time it occupied their brew tanks.

The last few new CA beers I tried have been 'underpowered' I would say. The #6 Peach IPA is surprisingly so for nearly five bucks a can. Oh well. As long as they have the Clouds IPA they can have my business! I just hope they don't dilute away their brand appeal in an attempt to scale up and reach markets.

I got a distinct rubber smell from mine. Anyone else? I had it on tap at the brewery.

Looking forward to the wet hop and No. 7, but I'm over the whole sour / gose / berliner craze and wish it would go die a quiet death somewhere. I appreciate the complexities of something like a Cantillon, but I find that too many of the beers we're getting are carbon copies of each other or fruited versions on a theme. Its the same with milkshake IPAs - if I have one I often get to the bottom of my glass and wonder if it wouldn't have been better to spend my money on a glass of juice instead.

Shit, I'm becoming cantankerous as I age.

Totally agree on the Berliner/Gose/Sour trend. These styles used to be a once in a while treat, but there are way, way too many of them out there now. So frustrating when you go into a decent beer bar and they've got half a dozen of these and only one or two IPAs. Too many saisons/farmhouse ales too (barrel-aged this, aged on tart-cherries that).
