Double IPA
Alexandria, Virginia

“When exploring the French alps, we came across something we did not know exists. While hiking, Joel screamed “That’s a Laser Raptor! I thought they went extinct thousands of years ago!”  Little did we know, this Raptor was friendly. He had been outcast decades ago and started his own brewery in Switzerland. After a few beers with this Raptor, we decided to do a collaboration and dedicate this beer after him! If you are wondering his name, it’s Jeff or El Jefe after a few beers.”  – Aslin Beer Co.

This Double IPA is brewed with Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops.
