Inversion IPA

A- / 4.0
Inversion IPA

Inversion’s trio of American hops deliver an over-the-top nose with hints of orange and grapefruit, then they toss in seven days of dry-hopping for good measure. No mere hop sledgehammer, Inversion is a careful fusion. Crystal and Carastan malts woven throughout provide for a surprisingly soft, caramel complexity for an 80-IBU IPA.

Named for a local weather phenomenon where clouds hug the base of the mountain only to reveal clear skies further up, it can turn a beer drinker’s IPA preconceptions upside down as well.
