Against the Grain Pile Face
What the brewers say
"A modicum of simple malts provide the mediocre backbone to the mountain of various hops that are utilized and rotated throughout the brewing process. Look for dank overtones supported by various citrus and heirloom fruits. It's the straight forward fuckin' IPA that you always wanted from us. You lucky bastard."
What our panel thought
Aroma: "Complex blend of west coast hops - citrus, pine, some light dankness - backed by a moderate sweet malt presence."
Flavor: "Classic west coast flavors - pine and light citrus are balanced by a clean malt presence."
Overall: "Classic west coast IPA - not overly aggressive in alcohol nor bitterness. Floral, piney, citrusy but not in a NEIPA orange juice way."
