After a long absence, our house IPA is back! If you haven't had Through the Glass in a while, this is a great time to reacquaint yourself. We're constantly tweaking and refining every part of our recipe/process here at Badlands with the goal of incrementally improving our beers every time we brew them. Each incremental step on its own may not move the needle in a readily apparent way, and in some cases tweaks may not move the beer forward at all and serve only as a data point to learn from. But over a time period of months or years these small one percent gains begin to add up to a meaningful whole that perceptively moves our entire beer lineup forward.
Through the Glass is one of the very first beers we released and it has continually evolved over nearly 3 years in small, but incrementally significant steps (technically it was originally a home brew recipe, so its actually almost been 6 years). It is one of our OG beers and we think this is the best batch we have ever made of it. We are excited for you to try it, either again, or for the first time!
Bursting with aromatic American hop varietals, Through the Glass is a double dry hopped IPA that is bright, juicy and highly aromatic. It’s loaded with aromas of mango, peach and candied citrus that are delivered on a soft, fluffy malt canvas. A delicate mouth feel and gentle, but present, bitterness ensures that this beer never tires the palate.
