COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available year-round.

The States were at war and one fateful day a troop of Union soldiers, occupying what is now Avondale Park, came across a posse of Confederate Home Guards. When shots were exchanged near the house of the town sheriff, a stray bullet struck his wife in the breast as she stood on the porch of her house. Luckily, she made a full recovery!

The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.

UDBeernut (2140) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Alambama slamma tick. Pours copper, think off white head that leaves an intriguing lacing head. Nose is somewhat muffled. It could be all those wet sloppy grains in the mash tun, but I get just some minimal pine. Taste has ample bitterness, more pine on top of a medium body. Finish is adequate, drying.
