Left Hand Warrior IPA.

FIRST FRESH HOP of the season
Left Hand Warrior IPA...$5.69 / 22oz
Warrior IPA with Colorado Fresh Hops

"The vibrant aromatics and flavors that are derived from the use of exuberant amounts of fresh flower hops are what helps create and set apart this most unique beer. New this year (besides the kick-ass new logo) is the fact that 100% of the Fresh Hops are grown right here in Colorado – from Rising Sun Farms in Paonia, CO (there are a few other varieties from our hop farm here @ the brewery, as well as from local growers right here in our area, but the majority are Cascades). We use Warrior hops for bittering, and Goldings for dry hopping. True to our fundamental belief system, the strong hop character is balanced by a strong malt foundation, allowing for an approachable, drinkable IPA that finishes amazingly clean. The beer is full-bodied, bronze in color, and tips the scales at 6.6% alcohol by volume and 60 IBU’s. Available in 22 oz. bombers and kegs. Modern Brewery Age’s December 2007 edition said “Warrior IPA takes no prisoners. It slays lesser brews…superb in every respect.” -- Left Hand
