Whatcha Thinkin’, a West Coast-style IPA that Modern Times brewed with Green Cheek in Orange County. They’re deservedly known for their California IPAs, which are kind of like modern West Coast IPAs, but more well-balanced & slightly less bitter, making them the perfect partners for this dance. They started with lots of pilsner malt, and then went with New Zealand-grown Riwaka hops, which are notoriously hard to grow & produce low yields, but are straight-up beautiful, super aromatic & expressive. They also used a little Idaho 7 for some blueberry fruitiness, & a tiny bit of Mosaic & Simcoe to balance it all out. The first thing you smell is the wonderful Riwaka, which is followed up by a rollicking celebration of citrus and tropical character rounded out by a pleasant, refreshing bitterness that you’d expect from this sort of libation.
