Gravity in terms of beer, is a scale that is referenced as a means of measuring the sugar content of a liquid. In this case, that liquid is what we call sweet wort, which is beer before it becomes beer. So, high gravity means lots of sugar. Sugar that we have naturally extracted from kernel of barley of the highest quality. Proof of which manifests itself in lots of flavor and higher alcohol, to which we add lots of hops. We mean A LOT of hops. In fact, an average of about 2 lbs. per keg. We're sure that you'll enjoy the complex array of flavors and aromas that this NorCal HGIPA has to offer.
