COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Growler @ home, thanks to bytemesis. Pours a milky, cloudy yellow orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Aroma has light onion, passion fruit, orange creamsicle, and spicy hops. Medium body. Moderate high bitterness. Low sweetness. Flavor has some orange citrus but really is highly herbal, grassy, and some pine. Finishes quite bitter. Nice flavor and aroma. Eminently drinkable but a little too bitter.
