Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by the original Pecker Wrecker recipe, this beer is brewed in the style of an India Pale Ale, a “dry hopping” technique is used where generous amounts of hops are added to the beer during its maturation stage which gives the beer an unmistakable floral and citrusy aroma. This beer is also known for its firm hop bitterness which is balanced nicely by the sweetness of the crystal malts used in this recipe.

Appearance has a semi-clear dark copper beer and a tall offwhite head, with excellent lacing and head retention.

Aromas are a wonderful blend of citrus and pine hops with a nod to lush tropical fruits.

The hoppy bitterness greets you first off, which is later joined by some malt in the background to help keep things in check. But the key element here is indeed the hop bitterness.

Finish is aggressively bitter, with a piney hoppy aftertaste and medium body. My only complaint would be some astringency in the finish.

Overall a very good IPA and it's great to see another Nashville-area brewer bring bottles into the retail market!
