10/6/2020

Hops: Citra

Collab with Coleman Agriculture (hops)

The base beer is a West Coast IPA and over 300 lbs of hops used on the hot side for a 10 barrel batch, so it definitely checks all the wet hop boxes and is extremely pungent and oily with exuberant tropical fruit notes.

Minesweeper

WC IPA

9/11/2020

7.1% ABV

Hops: DDH w. Simcoe & Citra

Minesweeper was our first ever brewed IPA and a local favorite, and has a creamy texture with a tad more body than your typical dry, West Coast IPA. As with most of our hoppy beers, a majority of the bitterness comes directly from whirlpool additions in the boil, with the intent of maximizing hop aroma & flavor. This batch of Minesweeper is DOUBLE dry hopped excessively with Simcoe and Citra hops

Haole Slush

Kettle Sour

9/11/2020

5.5% ABV

Our first “Slushie”-style Kettle Sour, and what better than to take the template of passion fruit, orange & guava classic, Haole Punch. Brewed with over 5,000 lbs of fruit, and a higher than normal finishing gravity to balance an elevated acidity level…hence “slushie” style. The kicker though is that it’s quite balanced with an appropriate amount of residual sweetness, but the punch of passion fruit, guava and orange is completely over the top!

Double Cone

WC DIPA

9/9/2020

8.8% ABV

“Hop Bomb” would be cliché to describe this beer. It goes way beyond that – intense aromas of pineapple, freshly crushed gooseberry, orange pith and the whole spectrum of “dank” blast through the glass. That’s what you get with nearly five pounds per barrel of Nelson, Mosaic, and Citra hops.

9/6/2020

8% ABV

Conditioned on HUNDREDS of pounds of dehydrated marshmallows, THOUSANDS of pounds of tangerine puree and then hit with a good dose of vanilla. A bit of milk sugar in the base beer also plays a part in creating a super balanced acidity. It's puffed pleasure if you ask us.
