Brewed For Proof Of Concept

A series of experimental-hopped IPAs, usually featuring ones so new they don’t even have a name, just a number. Your current hop selections:

  • Hopsteiner’s #17701 hop combined with the stalwart Cascade varietal. These two varietals combine for an interesting collection of flavors including vanilla, citrus, turmeric, and floral, peppery aromatics.
  • Eclipse, known for citrus, tropical fruit, and sweet pine aromatics.
  • EXP_528_101_62. Look for notes of lemon, strawberry, pine, and citrus peel.
