Draft Magazine, citing Rough Draft Weekday IPA as one of the top 25 beers of 2013, used a unique term to describe the beer.

"The session IPA trend continued its ascent this year, and Weekday IPA sets a new standard for how hoppy the style can be.  A powerful aroma of peaches, grapefruit, pine and (pleasant!) catbox leads to an unfathomably light, bright sip that pleases the tastes buds with those same hop flavors.  It’s equally delicate and striking."

There's a flavor I've never picked out in a beer before, and kind of hope I never do!  Check out the rest of their top picks for the year here.


  1. I thought the same thing when I read that. I assume it is a reference to the musty, sometimes piney, smell of fresh kitty litter. That is not something I want to think about while drinking a beer.
