The first of our 2014 summer releases, Highkick! Borderline I.P.A. was born from the desire to create the first-ever-in-the-world (not Google verified) Pakistan Pale Ale, which our brewer figured would be “ just left of an India Pale Ale.” Well, it turns out that there is a famous, daily military ritual at a border crossing between Pakistan and India where guards perform a choreographed spectacle, including ultra-high kicks. Highkick! Borderline I.P.A. provides a solid malt backbone to an abundance of Centennial and Amarillo hops added at the end of the boil and post-fermentation (dry-hop). Notes of citrus and fruit dominate the palate with a slightly bitter, dry finish. Watch your chin!            5.9% ABV   45 IBUs
