India Pale Ale | ABV: 7.4 %
This unfiltered, fruit-forward IPA has assertive hop notes and a fluffy body. Select aromatic hops, including Galaxy, Citra, and Hallertau Blanc give this beer grape and stone fruit aromas and flavor. That’s balanced by a light, but bready malt bill, which includes toasted flaked and naked golden oats. At 7.4% ABV, this IPA can creep up on you. It’s gonna be a little hazy, y’all. Beware; you may make bad choices drinking this beer—such as jumping into a freezing cold swimming pool with someone who is not your wife.
This beer was brewed in celebration of the screening of National Lampoon’s Vacation for our annual April Comedy Movie Month series at our Merrimon Avenue movie theater. We show a different classic comedy movie each week, create a brand new beer for each movie, then let the public suggest names for the beers with our Head Brewer picking the winning name.
