Description 

In the San Francisco spirit of innovation, Villager blends classic Northwest hops with contemporary ale yeast to establish a delicately constructed IPA. Villager's hop aroma is both citrusy and floral, complemented by notes of stone fruit and tropical flavor in the finish. A true expression of the cultural contrasts that embody our city by the bay, Villager brings a new twist to this West Coast style.

This canned IPA is brewed with Jarrylo, Warrior and Centennial hops. The aroma is prominently hoppy with characters of floral, citrus, perfume and tangerine with very little malt to be found. The flavor is slightly less hoppy than the aroma with herbal, grassy, floral hops along with light support from grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter, dry, astringent and harsh; the hops are quite low in the finish with grassy, spicy and herbal flavors able to be picked out. The hop aroma starts off wonderfully but the hop intensity declines towards the finish, and the grainy and hoppy astringency detracts from this beer's overall character.
