Hop Czar

See All Like
Our Hop Czar® IPA series highlights the glory of hops. The third in the series takes the aggressive hopping and higher alcohol of the original Hop Czar and blends it with full-bodied dark malt recipe to create a smooth-drinking full-flavored Cascadian Dark style IPA. We use a very soft tasting dark malt called Midnight Wheat along with our base pale, and smaller amounts of some other dark malts. Then we use a big dose of traditional NW hops: Cascade, Goldings, and Crystals in the kettle followed with more Cascades and some Centennial hops in our hop jack.
ABV 6.5% | ORIGINAL GRAVITY 16.1 | IBUs 70
