Brewmaster's Notes


India Pale Ale





Key Ingredients:

  • Hops: Cascade and Fuggle, dry hopped.
  • Malt: Pale and Caramel Malt.


Golden Amber.


Warm, citrusy bouquet with subtle floral notes.


Medium-bodied, medium carbonation.


A classic, sessionable IPA, dry hopped to lend a distinctive citrusy Cascade hop flavour and aroma.

Food Pairing:

IPA is a great brew to get the appetite going, but also has enough character to hold its own against the hot stuff. So bring on the salsa, jerk chicken and lamb vindaloo. Steaks too.

Pale in Colour, Not Flavour

If hoppy makes you happy, this Pacific Northwest-style IPA is your beer. We brew it with two kinds of delicious Yakima Valley Cascade hops, in such a way as to deliver the maximum heavenly hoppiness to your tastebuds, with the minimum bitterness.

Little Known Fact

The Cascade was the first North American-made aroma hop and the first hop variety from the USDA’s hop research program to be approved for sale since prohibition. It's aroma is now one of the hallmarks of North American craft beer.
