The Essential IPA Series
India Pale Ale - 7.0% ABV
FEBRUARY RELEASE: ENDLESS CYCLE IPA
This series focuses on some of our favorite West Coast IPAs both old and new. This year, we also partnered with local breweries and charities to create fundraising events that support and enhance our neighborhoods.
Biking to work is a karmic twofor. Not only is it good for the environment but it’s also great for your health. More than a few of our brewers make the daily trek to work by bike and to celebrate this, we brewed Endless Cycle IPA and are hosting a community bike ride, raising money for a local cycling charity, Team Cretins.
Flavor Profile: Intense citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit come from this supercharged hop combination along with pronounced notes of tropical mango and a dank, resinous finish.
MAY RELEASE: DDH SUN SOAKED
With an average of 246 days of sun a year, San Diego has more beach days than most of the country. In the spirit of protecting these beautiful natural resources, for our beer release event, we are holding a beach clean-up in Ocean Beach benefitting the Surfrider Foundation.
Flavor Profile: Mango, passion fruit, and fresh berry flavors play off the heady, dank aroma of tropical fruits and light herbiness that comes from the Strata and Ekuanot combination.
HOPS: Strata, Ekaunot, Amarillo
Stickey Henderson, one of our classic Thorn West Coast-style IPAs, was such a fan favorite that even our good friends down at 3 Punk Ales wanted us to trade them the recipe. Instead, we decided to collaborate together on this newest version, while also creating an event to benefit our local, South County Little League.
Citrus and passion fruit flavors collide in this West Coast IPA, jam-packed with grapefruit, orange, and tropical notes before it finishes bright and dry.
First brewed in 2018, this collaboration with Burgeon Beer Co. quickly became a fan favorite. We decided to run it back this year while also enlisting a local non-profit to host a tree-planting fundraiser that embraces both breweries’ ethos that focuses on sustainability and being good humans to our planet.
Flavor Profile: Robust notes of grapefruit, guava, and apricot emanate from the generous use of this hop blend before finishing balanced and dry with the distinct aroma of a pine forest.
