Featuring 100% German hops, High Top is a kettle-soured, slightly tart, golden and hazy IPA with a real kick.
Expect big tropical fruit flavors and aroma, tied off with a tart, juicy finish.
For this edition of Up & Comers, we set out to create a pair of beers, Euro Step & High Top, that mashed up the old & new brew schools. Classic and modern. Old Country meets BX creative energy.
They’re both super-juicy, pillowy Northeast IPAs. But to mix things up — and throw it back to one of the oldest brewing traditions in the game — they both use exclusively German hops.
The result was Euro Step: a hazy IPA that’s got a character anything you’ve tried before. Meanwhile, we added kettle-souring for High Top to give it a similar treatment to the one that made City Island Sour one of our most popular beers.
