Notes/Commercial Description:
A classic beer for those beer lovers who love their hops, Happy Camper IPA will take the Pepsi Challenge (or IPA challenge, as we say in New Mexico) against any other pretenders to the throne. Was it divine providence that made this beer the king of the IPA world? Was it a tireless pursuit of glory? No, this IPA has a top-secret recipe to thank for its success, and this meticulously formulated combination of several different hops combined with a very specific brewing process give Happy Camper IPA a spicy, citric, and floral infusion of hop character, which is masterfully counterbalanced with the full-bodied maltiness characteristic of the Santa Fe Brewing Company’s distinctive beers.

Was in Vegas for the weekend. Vegas is notorious for crappy beer, especially on the strip. I even bring my own beer on the plane, if that tells you anything.

Well, was playing some Pai Gow at the Flamingo. Walked by the bar and saw this IPA...this is free while playing, so what the heck???!!!

On tap at Bugsy's bar at the Flamingo...

Very nice hop flavor...resiny, citrusy....really well balanced. I drank about 10 of these over the weekend while gambling. Solid. If this was available in NC, I would drink a ton. Great job.

As a hop head this has become one of my favorites. We rate it up there near one of my other fav's, stone ipa. The handiness of can sure make trips to the recycling yard better.
