Badger Hill Hexit. Brewed and bottled by Badger Hill Brewing, Shakopee, MN. 6.8% ABV, 60 IBU.
|I was unable to get a photo that captures the awesomeness|
of Brandon Holt's label design. Up close, gold tint and all,
it's an amazing drawing.
Thoroughly clouded, amber colored, thick lasting ivory head, leaving lace.
In the nose: Bright, beautiful hops popping out, bold and citrus-y, with malt and honey coming in from behind. Lovely hop flavors, with low bitterness, and sweetness following suit.
In the mouth: Here's where the bitterness comes in, right out of the gate, coating the palate, but kept in check. Delicious, this, and refreshing, too. Nice and yeasty. Lot of great flavors going on in here. Great beer, and you can drink it, that's for sure. Surely satisfying, and uniquely tasty.
Here's the words from Todd on the label: "Haug + Exit= Hexit. Join Linda and I in a hearty skal as we exit MN for greener pastures in the greater Chicago area. HEXIT has loads of oats and honey flavor with dry hop aroma of mic drop proportions. This of it as a Breakfast IPA.
Thank you Badger Hill Brewing for the opportunity to bring some attention to the potentially catastrophic demise of bees in MN. Thank you to the Rufer family for providing Sweet Bee Honey and advocating for the bees. All profits from HEXIT will go directly to the Minnesota Honey Producers Association and the University of Minnesota Bee Lab.
