Notes / Commercial Description:
We heart session beers. There's nothing quite like whiling away an afternoon with a six pack of something crisp, clean, and light enough to walk away from when the job is done. But we also demand flavor -- hops at that, and the more the better. Meet the Crusher: this poundable session IPA is brewed with 2-row barley and a touch of caramel malt for depth, accented with loads and loads of late-addition hops. Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops provide an IPA-sized dose of intensely fruity, citrusy hop aroma without an overly bitter finish. This is the IPA bar stools were invented for.

this is by far my favorite beer they have ever made! its always on tap and always rotating hop varietals. Citra/Nelson combo has been my favorite to date. smells like fresh cut grass, ripe and juicy tropical fruits, with a slight dankness. taste is a clear cut hop bomb, refreshing and super quaffable. it finishes somewhat dry with you always needing to take another gulp.

Fairly forgettable. Nothing special about it, and in the blend of better local IPA's this one get's left behind. I'll definitely pick it if it's the only local/craft option, but definitely won't go out of my way to get it.
