Description: This is a super sessionable, yet super hoppy West Coast style IPA. It's rooted in techniques that are newer out of San Diego and traditional Northern California IPA's, and brewed with micromalted Pacific Northwest grains from Mainstem and Skagit Valley Malting. New-school West Coast IPA's would probably pick a nuanced dextrin to bring up the body, and we used premium German carapils.
Why mention malt in an IPA? Because these malts had to be able to fight off the copious amounts of Tahoma, Horizon, Amarillo and Comet we poured in, giving a nice green onion and garlic dankness. And how does this all taste? Somewhere between dank and really fricking dank. From there, it evolves into beautiful black tea and pine notes, with an oh-so-pretty lingering orange peel pith. You aren't going to accuse this of not being hoppy enough. It was pummeled in every technique our head brewer has tried so far in our Non-Alcoholic program!
