In July of 2020, we teamed up with Vitamin Sea Brewing for a collaboration that in many ways was a major highlight of the summer. The support of Channel Charge was so overwhelming, we knew we'd have to connect again soon thereafter to do it again. This time around, VSB was kind enough to allow us to brew their version of the collab, Charge the Channel, a Double IPA hopped with ludicrous amounts of Citra, Rakau, and Galaxy.
Pouring a hazy deep yellow, Charge the Channel wastes no time in filling the room with its vibrant, tropical aroma. Notes of mango nectar, juicy pineapple rings, and a rush of ripe guava delight the palate. Underneath this onslaught of tropical fruit, a creamy citrus profile adds notes of candied grapefruit, lemon preserves, and orange creamsicle. Charge the Channel offers a medium-bodied mouthfeel, with gentle bitterness, and a highly drinkable finish.
