Runner-up for People’s Choice at this year’s Willamette Week Pro/Am, this IPA was made with lactose and palm sugar added to the boil to provide a creamy mouthfeel. Whirlpool additions of Sabro and Mosaic hops bring notes of pineapple, coconut and tropical fruit. To further accentuate these notes, it was fermented on pineapple puree and heavily dry hopped with Galaxy and Vic Secret. Finally, we conditioned it on grilled pineapple, coconut, and rum soaked vanilla to round out this tropical delight. If you’re not into health foods, and you have half a brain, this is the beer that you’ve looked for, come with us and escape.
