Brewer's Notes

This IPA is an IPA for hop heads. Each hop is loaded with essential oils redolent of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Built upon a luxurious malt foundation and dry-hopped with Mosaic, Azacca and Simcoe, Megathrust bursts with flavors of mango, pineapple, papaya, and tangerine. This incredibly well-balanced IPA with a slick oily mouthfeel and the warmth of 7.5% ABV create an experience that demands a return trip. Enjoy!
