Scale of Complexity (Experimental Hops)
4 Hands Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Forget big, shiny arches and Judy Garland singing about trolleys — St. Louis is really all about beer. For the third year in a row, USA Today readers chose the city for having the best beer scene in America!
And, right at the tippy top of their St. Louis craft breweries list is 4 Hands Brewing.
Grab a taste of today’s Scale of Complexity and you’ll see why 4 Hands has quickly moved from Thrillist’s Most Underrated Missouri Brewery of 2019, to this year’s USA Today darling.
Scale of Complexity is an experimental NEIPA, with a whole gamut of new, rarely-seen hop varieties. You’ll taste bright mango and semi-tart Granny Smith apple from HBC 344, juicy stone fruit from HBC 522, and a delectable, floral finish with a whisper of grapefruit from HBC 692.
And, once this batch is gone, you won’t get another shot at it. 4 Hands is changing up Scale of Complexity’s hop combo every four months!
With a move like that, you’re looking at the brewery that’s poised to bring St. Louis into a fourth ‘America’s Best Beer Scene’ win.
*4 Hands won Silver in the IPA category at the 2020 Best of Craft Beer Awards.

Good a little weak on hops flavor.
Not really complex
Not bad, interesting hop blend. I would drink again
These experimental hops tasted very different from a typical IPA. I don’t think it was a great combination though.
Thicker mouthfeel, short on hoppy and citrus flavors. Easy drinking for 6.5 ABV
