Seven Stills "Planned Obsolesence" San Francisco IPA, California (16oz cans)

SKU #1350390

Look, I love the new trend of super dry hopped NE IPA's as much as, if not more than, everybody else. At the same time though, there's something about just a raw-dog, old school West Coast IPA that brings me back to a special place in time, and the style is unfortunately slipping out of style. With all that in mind, we wanted to find a happy middle ground between that hard-body-karate , high-IBU, West Coast IPA, and the more subdued dank-bombs that are taking the world by storm. Enter Planned Obsolesence, a self-proclaimed San Francisco-style IPA that uses classic tried-and-true WC bittering hops (Chinook/Cascade) to build that classic IPA smack on the back, but also a healthy dosing of "trendy hops" in the dry-hopping to appease the modern hop head. What you're left with is a healthy balance between grapefruit, reefer, and melon on the nose, that gives way to a steady ride of citrus and melon up front with a classic finish of pine on the palate.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
