Smuttynose – Finestkind – IPA

If you’re after the all American beer, this is the IPA for y’all.

Hopped, and then hopped again, and just a little more hopping, and dry hopped, makes this IPA a little hopped up, hoppingly hoppy.

Did I mention this was hoppy? It’s brewed with a lot of hops! A lot of American hops!

I love a hoppy beer, but sometimes you just want that extra oomph. The Finestkind has a complex flavour, which won’t disappoint those who like a bitter bang. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Needless to say, this beer pays homage to the American hop.

Next Door Cellars has this on their shelves now. Hop to it!
