Notes/Commercial Description:
In Montana, many classic memories are made right after someone says, “Hold my beer and watch this.” These bold, assertive moments deserve a bold, assertive beer – Big Sky IPA. A distinct hop presence and malty backbone will leave you refreshed and ready for your moment of glory. Hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

We originally drank this at source on Dulcie and Aylwin's Big Beer Adventure in draft form and were shocked at how good it was. Having dragged a couple of sixers back across America, we were delighted to discover it in the local Binny's. For me it compares favourably with the renowned Surly Furious: it has that big piney hop nose and full citrus palate that is delightful to chew on. Appearance is medium coloured yellowish amber, slightly hazy, decent head when poured which dissipates slowly. Great effort from the wilds of Montana.
