Seemingly oxymoronic, this is a dark beer that remains hop forward, delicately balancing roasted malts and heavy hopping rates to create a wonderfully unique brew. It has fallen in and out of favor with brewers over the years, but seems to be enjoying a small resurgence recently.
A heavily-hopped, high alcohol, very bitter American ale. Kind of the IPA’s bigger brother with more of everything the IPA has.
A hop focussed, pale, bitter American ale with moderately high alcohol and enough malt presence to balance the hop profile. The undisputed king of American craft beer.
Czech Pale Lager
Rich, characterful, pale Czech lager, with considerable malt and hop character and a long, rounded finish. Complex yet well-balanced and refreshing. The malt flavors are complex for a Pilsner-type beer, and the bitterness is strong but clean and without harshness, which gives a rounded impression that enhances drinkability.
