Brewed with fresh oranges, Iron Hill Hopicana is here for summer

Iron Hill Hopicana

Iron Hill Hopicana brings the “juice” ahead of summer.

The multi-state based brewpub created Iron Hill Hopicana (a west-coast India Pale Ale) to taste like fresh picked orange juice in beer form. So much so, they used fresh oranges.

Hopicana is a hop-forward IPA brewed with real oranges for refreshing, juicy flavor. It’s a West Coast-style IPA that drinks like a cold glass of fresh-squeezed OJ.

The label is inspired by commercial food labels from the 30’s and 40’s.

Iron Hill Hopicana will be available on May 10th in 16-ounce cans and draft.

Style: IPA (w/ Oranges)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Summer Seasonal.
Debut: 5/10/18
