Hazy DIPA

8% ABV

Hops: Nelson, Galaxy & New Zealand Cascade 

Collab with Other Brother Beer Co.

We teamed up with local homies and kindred spirits, Other Brother Beer Co. to bring you this juicy Double IPA.

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.

Mallow Mania

Imperial Kettle Sour w. Marshmallows, Tangerine, Milk Sugar & Vanilla

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.

Galaxy Baby!

9/6/2020

7% ABV

Hops: Galaxy (Australia)

Care to check on the fresh 2020 crop of Australian Galaxy hops? Spoiler alert: they're INSANE. Peach & mango candy, passion fruit, and quite punchy. The body on this batch is frothy with a dense, meringue-y head of foam that conveys all that Galaxy goodness straight to your dome-piece.

Hops: Mosaic

Our 3x GABF medal winner, but with pineapple! Light on bitterness, but heavy on aromas of passion fruit, mango and lychee, courtesy of 100% Mosaic hops, with pineapple amping up the fruitiness for this outing. Grain bill of just American two-row malt and a clean fermentation keep it simple and allow these hops to shine. Note: Technically, an International-Style Pale Ale but We Call It an IPA :)
