As the old saying goes, "Close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades"... and maybe beer too!
With our first canning run of Imperial Leaf Peepers, the use of a centrifuge caused the loss of some of that great juicy haze that we love in this beer leaving us with a nonetheless delicious, full bodied albeit less hazy, double IPA.

On sale in 16oz 4-packs and on draft TODAY in the tasting room!
