Hellscape Hazy IPA is a beer for our times. It's both absurd and absolutely necessary to make beautiful things as the world burns. Hellscape is our latest contribution to the search for pleasure amongst the flaming wreckage. This 6.66% ABV Hazy IPA is notably bitter for the style with 62 IBUs, but it's the generous sacrifice of Enigma and Simcoe hops that make this tropical, fruity IPA worth seeking before it slips into the flames.
Skullet IPA is typically reserved for metal legends and Wrestlemania champions, but for the first time ever it’s made its unmatched charisma available to common doofuses like us. Skullet harnesses the awesome juiciness of a NE IPA and combines it with the formidable bitterness of a West Coast IPA to create an unforgettable first impression. Its 6.7% ABV and 62 IBUs of fruity Citra, Amarillo & Belma hops are a match made in hades. Come taste what it’s like to be in the presence of Dio.
We’ve got special hours today for private event. We will be closed from 4-7pm and reopening at 7pm.
Treachery Sour IPA is what happens when we give @trevmo_swaggins, our resident Dr. Moreau, free reign. Treachery is the unnatural hybrid of Lecherous Haze IPA, our Orange Creamsicle inspired Pillory Kettle Sour and the added hubris of an Amarillo dry hop. Treachery will be released from its cage at 5pm.
Dirge juicy IPA is bringing Ghost Town’s fuzzed-out riffs to a new volume. Dirge is 6.5% ABV, 50 IBUs and 200dB of Vic Secret and Citra hops. We squeezed every bit of passion fruit, pineapple, mango and citrus from this Conan fermented IPA, but we also cut some of the muddy frequencies for a cleaner mouthfeel and less reverberant finish. Dirge won’t give you palate fatigue, but tinnitus and a sore neck are a legitimate risk.
