Beer Reviewing: Archaic Revival Hazy IPA
Type of Beer: IPA
ABV: 7 percent
Pre-tasting: With a 7-percent ABV this IPA packs a punch and with a strong name the Brew seems to be preparing you for a tale as old as time.
Post-Tasting: Greeted by pineapple, tangerine and stone fruit, this beer is dressed to impress. Dry-hopped with mosaic,citra and simcoe and a base of Briess specialty malt mixed with a Norwegian pilsner yeast.
You'll like this beer if: You are looking to get away from the winter blues, stop in and get a tropical warm feeling at Hinterland, with a knowledgeable staff and an amazing modern industrial setting you will have a great time to keep you warm.
You'll dislike this beer if: You prefer to have more than three pints this beverage may not be for you simply because this brew means business with a 7-percent ABV.
Ask for Isaac at Hinterland for new brews if Archaic Revival Hazy IPA isn't for you.
