Unlike Smuttynose's single hop series, you'll have no problem going coast to coast with the Backcheck IPA.

Fairly smooth. None too bitter. A perfect brew to pregame with at 6.3% abv.

Crush a few of them and you'll be talking trash to the other team's third line before the puck drops. This is a great way to initialize the Gordie Howe Hat Trick. Then again, crush too many and you'll end up facedown on the ice.

Smutty's Backcheck IPA is a great post-game beverage for registered beauticians and pheasants alike. It's also an excellent choice to numb the ache of all those Leg Day road sueys.

If you're putting together a list of beers that would be great to drink while watching Letterkenny, the Backcheck IPA would have to be on there, along with Night Shift's How 'R Ya Now, Springdale's Good 'N You, and of course, Puppers Beer.

Chico yeast.
