2016 Best IPA – 3rd Place – Greener Pastures New England Style IPA
Free Verse IPA (6.8% ABV; 77 IBU) Conform to the bitter expectations of your standard India Pale Ale? Not us. We pair the juicy, tropical flavors of Azacca hops with whole-cone spicy, piney Chinook to create a rounded bitterness. A hoppy, aroma-forward delight that will appeal to both IPA lovers and those who don’t think they like IPAs…yet.
Rob Your Head Imperial Red Ale (8.4% ABV; 72 IBU) Roasted & caramel malts deliver a robust, ruby body that is balanced by assertive bitterness and a big dry-hop of classic American IPA hops. Simcoe + Amarillo combine for piney and citrusy aromas to make this beer one to enjoy from first glance to last sip.
