Description 

A special beer for a special cause. The name comes from the sharks "Ampullae of Lorenzini," the shark’s electro sensory organ used to detect changes in electric fields. This American Double IPA was brewed with blood orange, local citrus, and Maui cane sugar. The unique hop profile of Azacca, El Dorado, and Sorachi Ace lend big grapefruit, ripe mango and tropical aromas, followed by a clean, mildly sweet bitterness. This is a deceptively drinkable Double IPA.

I smell a pleasant mix of resin and citrus followed by a little orange citrus, biscuit malt, and a touch of coconut/tropical fruit. I also detect some underlying generic spice. The flavor is fuller than the aroma suggests. I get a lot of resin flavors, some citrus, and a firm, bitter finish. There is more tropical fruit and citrus in the flavor than in the nose. The malt is highly restrained for both aroma and flavor. The resin lingers in the long aftertaste. This is a fairly dry Double IPA with a firm crisp finish. It’s a pleasant beer, more balanced and much more drinkable than many Double or Imperial IPAs.
