Have you ever drank with the devil in the pale moonlight?

This one tastes more like a barleywine than an IPA, but the devil is full of all kinds of tricks, isn’t he? Dry-hopped with 10 hop varieties, there are a lot of flavors dancing around in this deep red and brown beverage – most prominent are the caramel malts that lead into fruits like cherries and oranges swirling around in a medium to heavy mouthfeel. The bitter hops come through in the finish, where the alcohol heat truly reveals itself with just a hint of pepper.

As complex as the devil himself, this wicked brew is as dangerous as it is delicious.

Beers will be available to sample individually in a five-ounce glass, build a paddle of four five-ounce samples, or as individual pints. Prices will vary.
