A short drive from Raleigh is the town of Fuquay Varina (technically two towns – Fuquay Springs and Varina) home Aviator Brewing Company and the Hogwild IPA (6.7% ABV 108 IBU) This is one of my go-to IPAs and one I added to the list because the warmer weather after the early snow screamed – have a summer beer. Given the options I prefer an IPA to walking in the snow.
A golden brew made with Pale Ale and Vienna malts. A veritable fest of Chinook, Columbus, and Cascade Hopps then dry hopped with Magnum and Williamette. A very hoppy and refreshing award winning ale.
