When the Vikings were raiding and pillaging across Northern Europe, they would occasionally burn their boats on the shore after arriving in a new land they were intent on conquering. Why? The image of a horde of hairy invaders making landfall and then destroying their only means of retreat struck fear into the hearts of the soon-to-be-conquered inhabitants. It also sent a clear message to everyone in the raiding party: There’s no turning back so succeed here or die trying.
Burn the Boats IPA pours a deep copper color with a creamy tan head. The toasted caramel malt flavor gives this IPA a solid base to anchor the bright citrus and pine hop flavor and aroma, which linger on the palate.
