    • Home Wrecker Imperial India Pale Ale

      Homie IIPA starts off with a malty backbone surmounted by fistfuls and fistfuls of Columbus, Cascade and Centennial hops. The balance between the hops and malt give this beer a very full and satisfying finish. But be forewarned. At 10.5% ABV this beer has enough alcohol to be used as jet fuel….well not really but almost. But there is a chance of some Home Wrecking after a few pints. Enjoy and try not to destroy any homes.
