Salvador Brewing Co. | Mad Dog Grapefruit IPA

Mad Dog was a deadly bomb used by the North-Americans to cause mutilations during the Vietnam War. Our version of this bomb will bring freshness and satiety to those who are hit by it. Grapefruit IPA is a beer that has as its main attributes the bitterness and the citric flavor from the grapefruit. A fruit that has personality and that, on this combination with a classic American IPA, composes a relentless squad. (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)
