Notes / Commercial Description: Recent studies prove that a beach-type environment can have a profound impact on our brains and mental health. There is something soothing about the sound of ocean waves, the smell of salt water, and the feeling of warm sand beneath your toes. We feel these ocean vibes and the power of the pun, ‘Vitamin Sea’, definitely have some truth to them. We have also discovered another groundbreaking way to boost mind, body, and spirit to achieve the same effects; hang out with Dino and Mike from Vitamin Sea Brewing for an afternoon. These guys bring such genuinely good vibes and energy with them, we couldn’t wait to have them back to brew another tropical juice bomb.
Ocean Vibes starts with a base of 2row, white wheat, and oats before a Citra and Idaho7 whirlpool. We then dry hopped it with Citra Galaxy, and for the first time, Sabro. We wanted to give this beer a creamsicle like finish so we added a touch of lactose to balance things out. First sip will give you Ocean Vibes galore. Pouring a hazy opaque bright yellow, this beer is bursting with tropical notes and flavors of guava, pineapple, bright clementine and a touch of island coconut from our new friend, Sabro. The velvety mouthfeel is creamy with a hint of chewiness and reminiscent of a tropical flavored push-pop crossed with our big EQjuice finish. If winter has you feeling sluggish, you better get your vitamins in!
