Zombie Orchestra IPA
It begins with a tentative peep, followed by a bolder croak. Slowly, inspired by their intrepid leader the others join in, waking from their icy stupor. And so begins the spring chorus, a sure tell sign that old man winter is making way for the ever so lovely spring.

Originating in Portland this new hybrid style aims to merge the hops of an IPA with the crispness of a lager. The use of rice in this brew contributes to its dry light body while the double dry hopping strengthens its bold hop character. Its short-lived and upfront bitterness balances with its crisp and very clean finish.
