    Battle Brews (2016 entries listed, 2017 TBD):

    IPA:
    Rule G IPA (7% ABV; 88 IBU)
    Rule G is the railroad industry’s policy against drinking on the job. With tracks running right into the brewery, we spite Rule G daily. Outrageously dry-hopped, this beer has a big hop nose and a dry clean finish that accentuates its citrus and grapefruit undertones. It is a bold beer that can stand up to bold flavors. Drink it alongside spicy food and it’ll ratchet up the heat.

    BREWER’S CHOICE:
    Inside Voice DIPA (8.3% ABV; 84 IBU)
    Brewed with a heaping helping of Summit, Galaxy and Citra hops, this aroma-filled Double IPA is big on flavor. Inside Voice has a pleasant citrusy lemon flavor with traces of blood-orange and peach, further rounding out this well-mannered beer. A small addition of wheat results in a creamy head and increased mouthfeel allowing the hops to linger.
