Defender IPA

The Defender is constantly vigilant, standing guard over all those who dare to create, to dream, and to drink great beer. This bright, juicy IPA takes on a reddish twist and features bold, fruity hop bitterness and an intensely resinous nose, leading the way into a dry finish that blazes the trail for your next sip.

But who is this mysterious hero? The Defender takes to the skies of Brooklyn, clad in a homemade mech suit, to protect us from blandness. She is armed only with bold red malts and explosively juicy hops, yet emerges victorious. Wherever beer drinkers need a hero, the Defender will arise, guarding the rooftops and alleyways in the name of delicious beer.

Brooklyn Defender IPA was forged in collaboration with our sidekicks at New York Comic Con as the official beer of the convention.
