Sisyphus The First Beer That We Distributed IPA

Sisyphus The First Beer We Distributed East Coast IPA. 6.9% Alc. by Vol. Sisyphus Brewing, Minneapolis, MN. "It's Not the Size of your Brew System. It's How You Use It. Started Small to Stay Small. We Craft What We Crave. Other Generic Platitudes....." Brewed and bottled by Sisyphus Brewing Company, 712 Ontario Avenue W., Minneapolis, MN. Sisyphus brewing.com.

highly hazed, pale golden, big white froth atop.

In the nose: Nicely soft and citric, not too much bitterness yet. Grapefruit, lemon, and lime, with a touch of pine.

In the mouth: Soft, again, and smooth, with increasing hop bitterness, just the way we like it. Nice, nice, nice. Growing bitterness makes it my kind of IPA. Dry, bitter, crisp, and satisfying. This is exactly what I love in an IPA and precisely why I love them, it delivers it all. Hints of tropical notes pop up here and there, but citrus is king in this, and it's delicious.

More from the label: Citra and Equinox hops. Vermont ale yeast. Pale and White wheat malt.
