Breaking away from the recent trend of super-hopped IPAs, Wildcat is brewed to provide the aroma and taste hop-heads crave, without overwhelming your pallet. Brewed with four different hops, and five different malts, our IPA is complex, while still remaining approachable. Magnum, Cascade, Liberty, and Saaz hops lend our IPA a citrus aroma, with a touch of noble hop distinction and herbal complexity, and a smooth, clean bitterness. The use of five different malts in our grain bill provides Wildcat with the complex flavors of malty sweetness, bread, and caramel that we use to round out our brew. Just like the settlers of Wildcat Mountain who inspired its name, Wildcat IPA blazes its own path into history. We hope you’ll be inspired to go your own way too, as you enjoy our Wildcat IPA.
Old Bust Head Brewing Company is named for a bygone crossroads in the rolling hills of Fauquier County, Virginia. The locals who dubbed the corner ‘Bust Head’ enjoyed not only the potent libations brewed there, but also a little good humor.
