Focal Banger is an American India Pale Ale. We have a real love for IPAs here at The Alchemist, and we strive to offer you the best hop experience that we possibly can. This beer is brewed using Citra and Mosaic hops and our favourite British malts. Truly, an abundance of hoppy goodness... Freshness and control have always been my main concern when it comes to our beer. We are committed to providing you with and unfiltered and unpasteurized hop experience. Why do I recommend that you drink it from the can? Quite simply, to ensure a delightful hop experience. The act of pouring it in a glass smells nice, but it releases the essential hop aromas that we have worked so hard to retain. If you MUST pour it into a glass, you may find that some of the hop resins have settled to the bottom - leave them in the can when poring. This beer is perishable and at its best when it's young, fresh and hazy. Keep it cold, but not ice cold. Drink this beer today, you could be dead tomorrow... - John Kimmich
