Each year, we try to top ourselves by making the hoppiest, most intense IPA we can muster. We sample endless hop varieties during the annual harvest to choose the ultimate mix—flavorful and aggressive, yet refined. Then we push them beyond their limits to reimagine Hoptimum, a remarkably drinkable triple IPA. Malts: Maris Otter, Two-row Pale, Caramelized malts, Honey Hops: Columbus, Mandarina Bavaria, Chinook, Motueka, Eureka, Azacca, Zappa, Amarillo Yeast: Ale Yeast

    Pours clear dark amber with a thick and fairly persistent buff head. Aroma delivers sharply resiny hops, tangy Mandarin orange and a little grapefruit, raw and slightly dank malt. Flavor provides zesty orange, resiny hops, raw malt, a honey undertone. Texture offers firm body and peppy fizz, and a bitter hoppy finish. Take it to the hoptimum.
