When the Sun Hits Tart IPA

This tart IPA combines three loves, sour beers, crushable IPAs, and early 90s shoegazer rock. We started off with a classic Amarillo hop base and added not one, but three new hops; Loral, Palisade and the rare Barbe Rouge. What we created is a truly unique brew boasting gentle herb and floral notes complemented by flavours of fruity orange citrus and overripe strawberries. It’s lightly tart with a big hop forefront finishing with a wave of ethereal vocals, distorted guitar and a heap of teenage melancholy.

Available Thursday, October 24th at the brewery, online store and kick-ass beer bars throughout Ontario.

Jake’s Take

This was just a perfect excuse to name a beer after 90s shoegaze bands.
