Both our flagship IPA and our brewery are named in honour of a classic Rudyard Kipling quote about our fine city: “This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be in Medicine Hat. And you don’t even think of changing the name of your town. It’s all your own and the only hat of its kind on earth.” A nod to the classic east coast style our IPA is made with heaps of Cascade and Centennial, and generously dry hopped with citrus hops. It delivers a crisp tropical blast with foresty pine.
"Pouring a beautiful bright amber with an off white head. This is one hell of an IPA. Insanely hopped with a lingering bitter aftertaste from the generous amount of cascade and centennial hops. The dry hopping with citrus hops is apparent on the nose and the first sip. I appreciate the earthy pine notes. The carbonation is mild and the mouthfeel is full." - The Beer Maven
