Big Ditch Hayburner American IPA
Big Ditch Brewing Co. – Buffalo, NY
Mules, known long ago as “Hayburners”, were the workhorses behind the construction of the Erie Canal. This IPA is equally dependable, and is extremely satisfying at the end of a hard day’s work. Hayburner is a luscious and citrusy IPA, with primary notes of orange, melon, grapefruit, and a slightly earthy finish. It packs a firm bitterness but remains balanced by abundant late hop additions and a soft, airy malt base.
