Golden Ale Somewhere between a blonde and a pale ale, this is the least-hoppy brew on the inaugural Hop Nuts lineup. Don’t be fooled, though—it’s crisp and easy to drink, but the subtle hopping gives the beer a fresh and full-bodied flavor. A great gateway pour for the Bud Light crowd.

IPA Hops from front to finish, the brewery’s IPA is floral and herbaceous, with notes of citrus at the end. A solid selection for the discerning hophead. If you fall into that category, opt for this instead of the pale ale.

Imperial Stout Just like a cup of coffee, Hop Nuts’ imperial stout is dark, strong and bold. Notes of espresso and dark chocolate marry in the thick and creamy brew. And at 8.5 percent ABV, this ain’t for the faint of heart.
