Brew Detective: Denver Airport

Hen House is a top choice for me when I see it at my local grocery stores. Today they released Denver Airport, a new IPA that will hopefully become a regular within their rotation. The story behind this IPA is almost as good as the beer itself—just look up the conspiracies theories that are linked to the Denver airport. Hen House used Citra, Hallertau Blanc and Ekuanot hops to create a very palatable IPA with the right amount of bitterness. It also helps that the ABV is 6.3%, however, your four pack may disappear quickly too. 

When opening the can the first scent I thought of was pineapple. Denver Airport pours thick, like a hop milk shake, but it is not entirely opaque. A lasting and substantial head protects the top of the ale. The scent was a bit muted once in the glass. Bitterness hits initially, before transitioning into a smooth finish. If you happen to see this latest release from Hen House I suggest grabbing some. 

Enjoy responsibly,
