Hopefully stormy weather stays away for tonight’s league. On tap for Monday is Empyrean’s Super Nova Summer Fest, a summer seasonal with hints of sweet corn, bread, and caramel that finishes with a blast of hoppy citrus. This week’s featured can is Sam Adams New England IPA, which features a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, Simcoe, and Cascade hops for a juicy, hazy IPA with notes of pineapple and grapefruit.

Copper Alt, a 2015 gold medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival, is a hybrid style of ale and lager. This bronze brew features subtle nuances of chocolate and hazelnut. As for the IPA, it overflows with hops and a blend of tropical citrus, grapefruit, and mango aromas.
