    Belgian White IPA
    White IPA
    ABV: 6 %
    IBU: 50

    Bright and fruit forward Belgian White IPA. Light, cracker malt base showcases prominent Belgian esters, with fruit and spice notes on the nose. Finished dry with melon and tropical notes and a distinguished hop bitterness.

    Mount Benson IPA
    India Pale Ale
    ABV: 7 %
    IBU: 60

    Medium bodied, well balanced IPA. A clean, biscuit-and-toffee malt bill showcases a balanced hop profile, allowing huge stone-fruit and citrus flavours to shine through. Finishes dry with a healthy lingering dry-hopped profile of subtle tropical and grapefruit notes.

    Snake Island CDA
    Cascadian Dark Ale
    ABV: 6.5 %
    IBU: 80

    Full flavoured, no holds barred Cascadian Dark Ale. Huge chocolate and coffee malt notes balance out a healthy Pacific Northwest hopping. Peachy notes mingle with a resinous finish, providing a delicate balance to the dark malt character. Smooth, well balanced and incredibly quaffable, this isn't your typical Cascadian Dark Ale.
