By Metro Times Staff

Founders Azacca
    Style: Single-Hop IPA
    ABV: 7.0%
    IPA’s which feature a single hop variety are perhaps the best way to illustrate their incredibly diverse range of aromas and flavor profiles. Like their core offering Centennial, Founders’ new limited-release IPA is an excellent showcase for the juicy, tropical characteristics of the Azacca hop. Its pleasant dryness is perfectly balanced, creating the harmonious blend of components we would expect from Founders.

By Metro Times Staff

Astro Coffee 
    
    Beans: Stellar selection of single origins from best roasters in the U.S.
    
    Brew: Espresso and pour-overs, with espresso-based drinks reigning.
    
    Space: Packed in tight, so maybe not the best place to work on your novel.
    
    Vibe: Depends greatly on the time of day, but it's friendly and fun.
    
    Food: Small selection of tasty vegetarian food and snacks.
