6.0% Alc. by Vol. Smashbomb Atomic IPA is the happy accident resulting from Peter's cockamamie experiments with burst hopping, or the theory that casting hops at every possible stage of the brewing process will complete totality in hops flavor and aroma, yet offer a controlled and still enjoyable bitterness.
Smashbomb is an Atomic IPA, which means it's an IPA, but anything with such a blast of Citra hops has a bit of extra sumpin'. Citra is a new hybrid hop variety with a high alpha acid of 11%, and has grapefruit, lime, apricot, melon, lychee, pineapple, mango, papaya and other tropical fruit flavors and aromas. But rest assured that with this much hopping, we gave this beer a nice, strong malt backbone too with Victory, Crystal, some black and North American pale malts.
