Have you ever wished you could crush your enemies and consume their life force!? .... yeah *cough* nor have we. But the same can't be said for the Juicy Brut! This maniacal monarch didn’t gain support for his claim to the throne through strategic wedding arrangements, nor did he bring his challengers to heel through deftly negotiated treaties. Oh, no. He conquered the realm using his dry, brutish nature and sheer force of juiciness. When the Juicy Brut enters the fray wielding his pulp-stained battle axe, he yawps but one maxim -- no quarter!
Juicy Brut IPA has a pronounced dry character with almost no malt sweetness, setting the stage for the Mosaic®, Amarillo® and Citra® hops to be on full display. Leaning heavily on whirlpool and post fermentation additions, the tropical flavor of these hops come bursting forth with aromas of lemon, orange, grapefruit, passionfruit and mango. We can offer only one piece of advice. Bend the knee and swear fealty to the Juicy Brut!
