Tap Handle #615: Lost Coast - Sharkinator White IPA (Version 2)

Tap size:  10.25"
Rarity: less than 10 seen
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

This is the newest incarnation of Lost Coast's Sharkinator tap, which I call "version 2" (Sharkinator "version 1" will be profiled at a later date). It features a mechanical, robotic shark swimming at the top of the tap. Made to look like metal, the body of the shark is segmented and riveted, with capacitors on its sides and an antenna on its head. Below that is a routed piece painted like marble that bears a decal of the brewery on the front and back. Under the brewery decal, also front and back, is a sign with the name of the beer. The shaft is a metallic gold color, with the words "Lost Coast Brewery" recessed into the shaft in black letters on the backside. A thin silver band protects the bottom of the tap from damage. It's a really beautiful tap, and being so new, is currently hard to find.

Lost Coast's Sharkinator is the hip brother of Great White. Well, maybe hop brother would be a better description. Great White starts with a hint of citrus, made with two-row malted barley, unmalted wheat, a secret blend of Humboldt herbs, crystal clear mountain water and ale yeast. Sharkinator takes Great White to the next level by dry hopping it with Cascade, Crystal, Chinook and Citra hops, providing a wonderful citrus aroma and refreshing hoppy flavor. This is a Session IPA, so grab some friends and drink all you want, they'll make more!
