Description

A few years ago, we decided to experiment by brewing the same beer with two different yeasts. This resulted in Love & Hoppiness, which featured CA and VT variations. The VT version—which drew on the Northeast’s haze movement—quickly caught on with our fans. We were stunned by the level of support we received, and the continued requests for a new release. So, we decided to take another crack at it and brew a bigger Northeastern, hazy style IPA, with a focus on using fruity, juicy hops.

Our goal was to take what we learned from L&H and use that as a jumping off point. And that’s how Sukahop was born: a beer that is so ridiculously aromatic and juicy—with Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops—you’ll swear you’re sucking on a hop. If you’re ready to fall in love with hazy IPAs, raise a glass with us and get ready to discover why this new emerging style of beer is so wonderfully special.
