Brew Detective: Mikkeller Windy Hill IPA

Mikkeller beer has become more available with four packs having hit the shelves in our little town. Windy Hill is a New England style IPA (please say there's no flour), it's juicy, fruity and tasty too. Windy Hill pours incredibly hazy with dense fruit aromas. If you actually empty the pint, there's more sediment than I prefer. Hopefully those particulates have to do with the Simcoe and Mosaic hops used to dry hop this delicious India Pale Ale.

Keep in mind that this IPA is brewed with a rotation of hops, not always is it the same hop bill, but it does register at 7% regardless of the ingredient profile. Windy Hill is basically hop juice. I was stoked to see it in our fridge, thanks to my better half. Hopefully these heady pint cans find your local grocers or beer shops. If not, look for Mikkeller beer on tap at fine establishments or at one of their California locations if you're lucky enough to live near one. Drink Responsibly.
