A collb with 4 Hands / Bale Breaker / Stone Sorry Not Sorry IPA! "We make no apologies for the fact that we love brewing bold, flavorful, hop-centric beers. Naturally, we welcomed the opportunity to work with two amazing craft breweries that share our lupulin-fueled dedication: St. Louis-based 4 Hands Brewing Co., known for its innovative IPAs; and Bale Breaker Brewing Co., whose owners’ family has farmed hops in Washington’s Yakima Valley for generations. Since theirs was the first hop farm to commercially grow the beloved Simcoe variety, using that piney, stone fruit-like hop was a must. Puréed peaches upped the fruit factor, while experimental hops HBC 342 and HBC 344 introduced notes of stone fruit, tropical fruit, berries and citrus to this IPA. Yes, we made another IPA. We concede it’s not surprising, but we are who we are: an unapologetic band of hopheads psyched to explore the ever-expanding IPA universe."

RATING SCALE:
0-0.9: "Drain Pour." Would not want to drink/finish. Terrible taste/aroma.
1-1.9: "Disgusting." A beer that has off flavors/taste and is very hard to drink/finish.
2-2.9: "Awful." Something went wrong. Doesn't represent the style and is hard to drink.
3-3.9: "Very Bad." Not made very well and doesn't meet the standards for the style.
4-4.9: "Bad." No off flavors, but has little to no taste or aroma. BMC products.
5-5.9: "Below Average" Nothing exciting. Has good, but many bad elements.
6-6.9: "Average." Has good flavor/aroma, but something is missing.
7-7.9: "Good." A solid example of the style, but has something minor wrong.
8-8.9: "Very good." Something that has a lot of good flavors and aromas and is easy drinking.
9-9.9: "Great." Goes above and beyond most beers, nails the style and has great taste/aroma.
10.0: "Mindblowing." Not necessarily perfect, but no improvement needed. Beyond exceptional. A+
