This light but strong IPA packs a punch from the classic Northern Brewer hop, with a hoppy flavor that will have you taking flight.

The most popular American craft beer style. They range in ease of drinking (session) from easy to quite huge knock-you-out-of-your-chair flavor and alcohol. Hop flavor is medium to very high and should reflect an American or New World hop character, such as citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, melon, etc. Medium-high to very high hop bitterness. Malt flavor should be low to medium-low and is generally clean and grainy-malty although some light caramel or toasty flavors are acceptable. Low yeast-derived fruitiness is acceptable but not required. Dry to medium-dry finish; residual sweetness should be low to none. The bitterness and hop flavor may linger into the aftertaste but should not be harsh. A very light, clean alcohol flavor may be noted in stronger versions. Maybe slightly sulfury, but most examples do not exhibit this character.
