IPA (India Pale Ale) - Are you looking for a palate-busting, tongue-numbing, melt-the-enamel-off-your-teeth super, super, super hoppy Northwest IPA? Well, then this probably ain’t your beer … move along, move along. Instead, we’ve been working since 1994 to make our flagship IPA a perfectly balanced blend of significant hoppiness with a sturdy malt backbone. Our IPA is very hop-forward with aromas of grapefruit and cedar as well as a resinous bitterness imparted by additions of Galena and Columbus hops. A simple but expertly designed grain bill compliments the hops by imparting subtle caramel and malt characters.
XIPA (Industrial India Pale Ale) - What’re you lookin’ at? You want a piece of this? We look at this beer as the surly big brother to our regular IPA; ready to mess you up at the slightest provocation. Be careful and don’t cross him or it might just be curtains. ‘Industrial’ is essentially our moniker for an Imperial or Double (insert style here); thus, this is our Imperial IPA. Just don’t call it that, or you might have an angry bartender leaping over the bar to enforce the usage of its given Diamond Knot name. Copious amounts of potent, high Alpha hops are manhandled into this beer at a rate of approximately 1.4 pounds per 31 gallon barrel. The enamel on your teeth is *probably* still safe with this beer, but we can’t make any guarantees. In addition to the otherwise ridiculous amount of hops and the elevated alcohol content, we built in a sturdy malt character to balance things out.
