Let’s go straight to the top, my favorite beer of the month is Natural Born Shredders from the combined talents of Beachwood Brewing and Highland Park Brewery. This IPA has a Wonderful aroma. Bright with dried fruit and pine. As it warms sone cat pee notes creep in. Loads of tangerine flavor. Overall light mouthfeel. Nice bitterness bite that lingers.
So let’s update the IPA rankings before mentioning a couple honorable mentions.
3 – Crooked Stave Idaho 7 IPA
2 – Offshoot Beer Co. DDH Visions
1 – Beachwood / Highland Park Natural Born Shredders
Two other really great beers wowed me this month. Total Boss Red IPA from Smog City was malty and hoppy and filling in equal measure. Radiant Beer Co. and their Can Down By the River Motivational Lager which from can design to flavor was great.
