India Pale Ale
Elevator Brewing Company
Columbus, OH

Label statements:
Alc. 6.9% by Vol.
12 FL. OZ.
Three Frogs is the Grand Daddy of Pale Ales. This style is known for its high hop bitterness and flavor. We achieve this standard by triple-hopping to produce a clean, crisp IPA with a medium body and creamy head. We also take the time to 'dry hop' with additional flavor and aroma hops, not once, but twice! This extra step rewards you with a lush floral hop aroma and spicy hop-dominated palate. This Big Beer will leave your tastebuds tingling.
Founded in 1999 by a father/son beer drinking team in a small town grain elevator, we are now in our second century of brewing award-winning beer with as much passion as you put into enjoying each pint.
Thanks & Cheers
