Some grass and richly gold in color. Indie Ferm claims it is between a NEIPA and West Coast IPA ... is Midwest IPA a category?

Independent Fermentations Brewing Beer Description

Somewhere between NE IPA and West Coast style IPA there is a happy medium where the malt is still there and the hops are balanced so that they complement, not overwelm, the flavor.

There's Lots of citra and azacca hops in here most of the time, but we change the hops up often depending on what we feel like playing with.

Instead of making one beer with a different name for every little hop variant, we choose to make one beer with endless possible variations but just one name. Don't expect the next batch to taste like the last one.

In case you were wondering, "squeezy wrench" is what one of our brewers calls channel lock pliers. He wrote the original recipe for the beer.
