Badger Hill Brewing Co. is rolling out a new IPA and you may just want to try it. Traitor IPA is a year-round offering. Badger Hill’s new Head Brewer Michael Koppleman has been pounding away at this beer for two years, tasting and tweaking to get it where it is today. “This is the beer I’ve been vectoring towards my whole life and I love it.”
The brewery describes this beer as “part West Coast IPA, part not.” Curious? You’ll find it in draft now and in 12 oz. bottles in early May. While definitely a hop forward beer, Traitor IPA will be consistent with Badger Hills mission to brew approachable, balanced beers – as balanced as a 70 IBU IPA can be. Traitor IPA uses four hop varieties (Citra, Centennial, Cascade & Galaxy) for flavor and aroma and British ale yeast helps for a smooth, dry finish.
