Badger Hill White IPA
Badger Hill brewery started in 2010 and for the first few years bottled through a partnership program with Lucid Brewery out of Minnetonka. In 2014 they moved to their new facility in Shakopee. The Krekelberg family who own Badger Hill started brewing together in the early 90’s.

What did we think?
We poured our IPAs into a glass to unleash the full aroma of the beer. The beer pours lighter in color, but do not let that fool you. The first aroma that grabs you is the coriander. It has a strong, citrus aroma and a familiar smell that will float up and grab you.
This is an amazing summer beer that starts out light and then brings in the flavor of hops, coriander and orange zest. The bouquet of the beer settles into your sinuses with a clean and refreshing scent.
The Beer Guys from Hanover rate this a must have summer beer in your refrigerator. A true medal winner!
