The World Is Yours

DH DIPA

10/30/2020

8.7% ABV

Hops: Motueka, Citra, Nelson Sauvin

The beer is juicy and expressive. Ripe mango, pineapple, and melon dominate with secondary flavors of lime, kiwi, and passionfruit. We hit it with some wlp 001 yeast as the beer was nearing the end of fermentation. This helped dry it out a touch more to bring more drinkability to the big 8.7% abv.

Island Punch

Tart Fruited Ale

10/30/2020

7.6% ABV

We started with a bold kettle sour base that we hit with a big amount of passionfruit, mango, and pineapple. While the acidity is higher than Pitted, it is still extremely crushable. Passionfruit takes the lead on this beer while the mango and pineapple show up on the mid palate and finish. It definitely screams tropical vacation.

7% ABV

Collab with Promised Land Brewing

Murphy's Peak is crisp and clean with a moderate bitterness, dry hopped with gobs of Simcoe, Motueka, Citra, and a new hop for us, Pacific Sunrise, out of New Zealand. The flavor profile hits a fairly wide range, from pine, citrus, tropical fruit, and even a little bit of dank with a nice lingering resinous quality.
