831 is a classic example of the modern American India Pale Ale. A simple malt bill provides a showcase for bold, citrus, dank hop flavors and enticing aromas. Each sip is clean and dry allowing for the pure expression of American grown hops including Magnum, Columbus, and Citra. Unabashedly aggressive and yet satisfying. 831 is our ode to the brash grace and herbal beauty of humulus lupulus.

750ml growler in a tulip. Pours hazy golden / amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of piney and resinous plus lightly citrusy (grapefruit mainly) hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with great hoppiness but maybe slightly too bitter. Average texture. A really good IPA but maybe slightly too bitter.

Growler. Shared by Chris, thanks! Hazy golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of dank hops, pine resin, like citrus and biscuity malt. Taste is also of dank hops, herbalness, resin, biscuity malt, light citrusy notes and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Super dank. I’m not sure that I like the hops bill and a little more carbonation would have helped (but that most certainly because the growler traveled). Good IPA. Drinkable.

On draft at SARA. A ton of citrus hops up front in the nose. Very hazy orange pour. A moderately pithy bitterness to it with a moderate citrus hop flavor. Quenching, but lowly carbonated.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma is nice and hop forward, but not a one dimensional fruit character. Lots of tropical and stone fruit but also some grapefruit and pine resin. Light malt notes of cracker in the background. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thin white head that recedes to the edges and lingers. Medium light lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a nice, light sweetness with medium light cracker malt notes. Moderately strong hop notes of stone and tropical fruit with lighter citrus character. Medium light pine resin with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice, balanced IPA, but not the hop bomb that people expect these days. Really nice, fresh multidimensional hop character.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer has a hazy orange body and sports a half inch of white head. The nose brings dank hops along with prominent grapefruit and tangy citrus. oranges and hops. Juicy and delicious. Easy to drink, finishing dry with moderate bitterness. A solid IPA.

At the source, pours glowing murky orange with thin clear bubbled white head. Aromas and flavor are skunk, orange peel, pine, and dank hops. Super dry and bitter in the finish with a coating of orange resin left on the tongue.

Had at SARA. I don’t find their IPAs to be as impressive as the saisons or sours. Not much here that’s unique...kinda flat...wasn’t very impressed.

Hazy golden orange body, large white head, sticky lacing. Piney with a fair bit or resin, followed by some tangerine and clementine. Medium bodied, with smooth carbonation and assertive bitterness. Quite tasty.

Very cloudy. Sticky foamy head. Nose is pine cones resin and tangerine. Yeah, uber resinous. Sticky dank and full of pine needles. It’s as expected. Finishes harsh. I’m not a fan of these but it’s still nice

Cloudy yellow orang in color... Aroma of piney hops... Flavor was crisp, fairly hoppy up front but not terribly bitter on finish... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
