Okay fine, we admit it, you can’t see the Northern Lights this far south. But San Diego has its own version of Aurora Borealis, and ours has cast a hoppy spell over this city. What the rest of the world calls an IPA, San Diego locals consider pale in comparison. Aurora Hoppyalis is our San Diego-style IPA brewed with Simcoe, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Citra hops. Robust flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, pine, and tangerine linger through a dry, crisp finish. Tonight’s forecast: clear hoppy skies.

Awards: 2015 GABF Bronze

Hops: Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe

Originally brewed in 2011 as a Brown Shugga substitute, due to capacity issues. But we liked it so much it had to make a return trip.
