Hops Degree IPA

Nate made the leap to return to school this fall in the pursuit of higher education. He is on his way to becoming a proud Texas Aggies graduating class of 2018 (Whoop!). And while the wifey is convinced that this is just a ploy for Nate to stow away during nights and weekends to get hammered with people ten years his minor, rest assured that this is all for the benefit of his beautiful little mind. We dedicate this American IPA to Nate’s academic journey, a long, bitter road to finally becoming a contributing member of society.
