COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chicagoans like hoppy beers, so we obliged by brewing a mean Double IPA. Then we asked artist Joey Potts to design a label of equal intensity. Generously hopped with Falconers Flight, Zythos, and Cascade, Sinister is brimming with juicy, tropical flavors of mango and pineapple. Dont expect back rubs and mixtabs from this beer-- Sinister wont even remember your first name.
