Virginia Beer Co. Optimistic Pessimism

Brewed by The Virginia Beer Company

American IPA7.2% ABV72 IBU

Independent Craft Brewer Seal

A hazy, unfiltered India Pale Ale bursting with citrus aroma from heavy whirlpool and dry-hopping additions of Citra and Falconer's Flight hops.

The Falconer's Flight blend of Pacific Northwest hops, which is known for its pronounced grapefruit and lemon attributes, pairs beautifully with the classic bright orange and tropical notes of Citra.
