Description
This special beer was made by Hopworks Urban Brewery, in conjunction with Portland's geek, creative and beer communities to help the City of Portland convince Internet giant Google to build an innovative gigabit fiber network here. This fresh & edgy IPA honors Portlandís new gigabit network project to pioneer a connected future with Google fiber-to-the-home. Embrace the bandwidth with a massive NW hop aroma, with rich citrus and pine accents aggressively balanced with clear malt caramel flavor, and a deep, clean, satisfying finish.
