ENJOY BY VALENTINE’S DAY
Instead of opting for a more clichéd romantic gesture, we turned our attention to making this sought-after double IPA even more seductive to the palate. On top of our standard bouquet of a dozen hops, we piled on the chocolate and coffee to make a beautiful entwinement of IPA goodness and vice-satisfying richness. Like the other IPAs in this series, this version is brewed specifically NOT to last. So love this devastatingly bittersweet IPA now before the hops start to fizzle out after Valentine’s Day.
