Rude Jester is an American-Style IPA with crisp lingering bitterness and an assertive hop flavor and aroma. A subtle, yet simple malt profile supports the hops up front, and then steps aside to allow the hops to steal the attention of all those partaking. Rude Jester combines the strong citrus qualities of the Centennial hop with tropical notes from the Mosaic hop to create a unique fruity hop flavor and a pungent, intoxicating hop aroma. Rude Jester IPA is no jest weighing in at 7.7% ABV and 72 IBUs, but it would just be Rude not to have another.
