COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Hazy amber. Big hop aroma is earthy. A bit cheesy, too. Medium hops, earthy. Clean pale malt sweetness is good. The funny thing about this is that it does hit the right notes...and you can drink a lot of it. There’s no one thing that makes it, but it ends up being a damn good IPA.
