IPA: Half Full Brewery’s IPA is a great one… Brewed with the perfect amount of hops and malts, this beer is a drinkable IPA that any beer lover would enjoy. this beer has a sweet aroma and a rusty, golden color with nice thin lacing throughout the pint. Moderate hop flavors provide, grassy and light citrus notes while the rye provides a dry spiciness to the table. While some rye IPAs are a little too much on the dry side, this beer is not. It is perfectly balanced to really create a distinct flavor on the pallet that you will enjoy with each sip you take.
