Our blind review panel loved this beer in our 2021 IPA issue, scoring it a rare 100/100. Thus, a cold IPA made our Best 20 Beers list for the second year running.
Green Cheek cofounder and head brewer Evan Price: “We couldn’t feel more honored to present … the recipe for our cold IPA! Ours is very pale, with a firm bitterness and a sticky resin quality in the finish. The sniffs and sips are all fresh Douglas fir, blueberry muffins, and strawberries.”
