When we kicked-off this series of intense hoppy beers, we wanted to go big. Imported New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops provide a vibrant tropical aroma that raises eyebrows and expectations. Aggressive amounts of Warrior and Ahtanum hops produce an assertive bitterness that stands out against a firm malt backbone. Balanced even at 90 IBUs, Big Barrel leaves a considerable first impression that serves as a prelude of things to come.

This aroma forward IPA showcases the versatile Mosaic hop. Tropical fruit and pine aromas completely dominate the nose. El Dorado and Centennial hops combine to round out the hop bill and provide a firm hoppy flavor profile accompanied by American 2-Row and Belgian Special Aromatic malts for balance. A heavy dose of Mosaic in the dry hopping provides you with a juicy hop punch that finishes slightly dry.
