Hopocalypse Red Label

Hopocalypse Red Label will annihilate the imposters with a blitzkrieg of citric hops and leave the brewhouse floors stained a crimson red. We add orange blossom honey and thousands of pounds of California blood oranges for a West Coast Double IPA with a twist. With its massive dry-hopping and a subtle pink hue, this beer brings together an armageddon of sweet citrus and bright, aromatic hops.
