MISS NC The next beer in our Air Raid Series, Miss NC, is a hoppy nod to our home turf. This hazy IPA features Riverbend’s NC grown Carolina Rye heirloom malt. This malt has been grown in the south for over 200 years and imparts herbal spice, citrus, and black pepper notes. We selected Hull Melon and Ella Hops (a tribute to our favorite French Bulldog) to layer massive notes of honeydew melon, papaya, mango, and grapefruit. A perfect IPA to quench your thirst in the heat of NC summer. 6.5% Alc By Vol

STRATAFORTRESS IPA
Strata Fortress IPA is a medium bodied interpretation of the West Coast IPA style. This brew features a brand new hop varietal grown in the pacific Northwest, Strata. The addition of Strata hops bring forth an array of aromatic fruit notes including peach, strawberry, and light citrus. Traditional west coast hop varietals (Centennial and Cascade) balance the fruit with citrus and pine notes complimenting the dank characteristics of Strata during the dry hopping stage. This straw colored ale has a balanced bitterness with a soft malty finish as we pay homage to the West Coast IPA.
