Yo, what up, another Hop Box Highlight, this time featuring Short Lived a 7% Hazy IPA from MadeWest and Humble Sea. This beer is the latest release in the Short Lived collaboration series from Midwest Brewing in Ventura. These guys have a core Hazy IPA that is damn good and super dialed in and they put out a ton of really amazing limited release Hazys, so when I found out that this latest collab was going to be with Humble Sea, another one of California’s best Hazy brewers, that just sealed the deal for their inclusion in this Hop Box.
This beer pours with that classic MadeWest Ventura haze mashed up with that unmistakable Humble Sea Santa Cruz fog for a beer that looks just amazing. It’s hopped with Citra Cryo, Nelson, and Strata…hoooooo baby, that’s all I needed to know!
This is a very special beer. Grab a Hop Box and taste it along with me!
