Despite George Washington calling it a “trifling place”, Charlotte evolved from a simple dirt crossroads into a leader of the new South. True to that spirit, Catawba has been evolving Carolinas’ craft brewing since 1999. This new creation, CLT India Pale Ale, offers up a modern, double dry-hopped, in-your-face explosion of tropical fruit and pine. And at 7.2% ABV, like today’s Queen City, don’t trifle with it!
This big IPA has loads of ripe tropical and stone fruit notes from copious amounts of Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo,and Centennial hops. A light malt bill leaves this beer with a dry finish allowing the hops to stand out.
