Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

a really solid can of ipa here, from a brewery that is new to me. this one is more of the classic simcoe centennial type hop profile with huge pine and is very bitter and woody. the malt base is nice too, sturdy enough for enormous hop dosing, while adding a fresh baked character to it. the hops are bitter all the way through, almost vegetal at the mid point they are so fresh, and then more of a pine sap thing in the finish where the sweetness of the malt flashes back with the honey sweetness of the hop oils. i love this combination. the size is just right, and the mouthfeel is right on, with a big frothy body but a cleaner finish and carbonation that keeps it moving but doesnt rush. i think i liked the full nelson and the project dank a little more even than this one, but what a solid beer, and this brewery is making a series statement with its hoppy beers. wow.
