Old School West Coast IPAs vs. New School New England IPAs$0.00 · bundle
The irony is that both of these are made in Chicago. Hopewell's Lightbeam is a NE/Hazy IPA: juicy, hugely aromatic, and a "fruitier" sipping experience. Lagunitas is a West Coast expression and a Chicago masterclass with traditional bold hop profiles bursting with citrus and piney flavors.
In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with either, it just depends on what type of flavor and bitterness you like. Both styles have taken the beer world by storm, so if you're a newbie or a seasoned vet, these two contrast just enough to offer a varying and fun porch session.
