A Clever Brew Trickster’s Wit

Trickster’s Wit is an enticingly robust White IPA brewed using Belgian Pilsner malt, 2-Row barley, and Torrified Wheat to create a silky smooth palate and body. Belgian Wit yeast, Chinook, Centennial, and Cascade hops for bittering, Amarillo for aroma with more Chinook and Cascade plus Azacca dry hop result in a beer with a fruity citrus sweet herbal and floral honey-like sustenance.
