Hellbender Black IPA

What's lurking under the sandstone rocks of the New River Gorge? Maybe a massive, 2-foot-long Hellbender. They thrive in our clear mountain streams, but around the country, degrading water quality is destroying the habitats of these uniquely gargantuan creatures. As North America's largest salamander, the Hellbender could curl around this bottle and envelop it entirely. Perhaps the only thing more striking than its size is its incredibly cavernous mouth, which can swallow unsuspecting fish whole. Open wide as a Hellbender as you clamp down on this black IPA.
