BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hamburg Brewing Company
New York, United States | website

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
At HBC, we’re no stranger to hops which is why our take on the iconic IPA style includes 4 varieties - ahtanum, palisade, chinook, and magnum. This British-American hybrid also plays host to 4 different types of malted barley creating a unique orange hue. Additional hops added throughout the brewing process contribute to the floral and piney aromas that mingle well with the distinct malty character. At 55 IBUs, this is an IPA for everyone to enjoy.

This has the IPA aroma I love, a blend of mixed citrus fruit, mountain pine, with a hint of new morning summer grass. Coming from an alright to better looking beer this awesome aroma seems to not transfer to the taste very well, leaving me a bit puzzled. Taste loses a lot of the citrus and mountain pine leaving a basic decent IPA taste which is still very drinkable but not as memorable.

Not very good. Tasted like the Octoberfest which is a lager. Extract all the way. Pretender
