The third permanent entry in Atomic Beer Project’s hop exploratory range shows more restraint and approachability than its peers. Indeed, XPA’s breezy pale blue can is indicative of contents that come on more like a lean-bodied summer ale than the beers you'll find at the robust end of the loose XPA style.
Hazy sunshine in the glass, Azacca and Vic Secret hops provide tropical touch points, supported by Ekuanot’s light citrus influence, all while keeping bitterness at a lowish 25 IBUs. It's a combination that leaves Atomic's XPA ready for warm weather and golden hour ‘gramming. And, presumably, plenty of room at the bolshier end of the hoppy beer spectrum for the Atomic team to explore.
