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.

1L swing top to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks bytemesis). Looks good; a hazy apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; bitter, piney, dank, and zesty hops with a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a fairly bitter medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.
