Season – Year-round
Brewed with Columbus, Cascade, and Centennial hops, this smooth amber IPA is an example of “hopbursting” and dry-hopping (with Amarillo hops thrown in for good measure). Most of the hops are added late in the boil or at the end of fermentation to create a massive hop aroma that’s bigger than the hop taste. The result is an IPA that’s smooth but complex, accessible enough for the typical “Sam Adams” drinker, but with a flavor profile to satisfy everyone’s favorite beer geek.
