India Pale Ale/10% ABV/100 IBU
Have hops achieved celebrity status in the beer world, or what? The leafy bittering agents get title billing in this muscular yet well-proportioned hazy IPA from Tombstone’s beloved craft brewing mainstay, and yes, it’s like a hop clinic in your mouth. The lush piney-ness from the Idaho 7, the refreshing lime-grapefruit interplay from the Citra, the tropical funk of the Stratta, it’s all here – in “ludicrous” amounts, brags the brewer, but with enough malt and sweetness to justify the ludicrosity. A perfect high-gravity summer sipper. Available at Arcadia Premium and other fine beer stores. tombstone.beer
