Concrete beach rica wheat ipa

ABV: 6.5%
IBU: 60

Official Description: From the flavors of little Havana to the art of Wynwood, Miami has an abundance of cultural riches. A smooth, sexy, suave style permeates everything and everyone. The infectious pulsing of the city is spellbinding. That’s the inspiration behind RICA – a Wheat India Pale Ale that complements all the richness that Miami has to offer.
