“We chose to dry hop Wayfarer primarily with Citra hops as well as Simcoe and Columbus for a big citrus forward aroma,” says Head Brewer John Stuart.  “We just lightly filtered it, leaving a bright refreshing color.”

Stuart wanted to create a unique take on a sessionable IPA, hence combining a delicate malt bill with loads of flavorful aroma hops.  It is mild in bitterness with an IBU of 45 and an ABV at 5.5%, rendering an approachable brew to all kinds of beer lovers.
