4. Waikiki Brewing Company
New Beers:

Skinny Jeans IPA
OG: 13 FG: 1 IBU: 56 ABV: 6.4%
Back before the “juicy” New England style IPAs were blowing up on Instagram, there was a very hip style of IPA – the West Coast IPA. Very highly attenuated and light on malt, these beers were hopbursting before it was cool. You probably wouldn’t have known about the hops, HBC 369 cv, and YCR 14 cv, they were pretty obscure at the time. Once they became mainstream they were called Mosaic and Simcoe and were much loved for their respective tropical/blueberry/rose blossom and dank/piney/resinous aromatics. This beer wears skinny jeans and jackets in the summer… you know – before its cool.
