Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Block 15 IPAs


There are a few Northwest breweries that crank out numerous different beers every week. Block 15 Brewing is one of them. And, the Corvallis, Oregon, brewery releases a wide variety of styles every week, too. Offering unique hop-forward ales, crisp lagers, Belgian-style brews, barrel-aged rarities, and one of the Northwest’s most extensive wild and sour programs, Block 15 produces a range of artfully crafted beers, brewed with a nod toward fresh ingredients and fresh thinking. The Block 15 barrage has arrived again to our Tacoma Proctor District craft beer lodge. It’s time for another in-house Block 15 flight, which we’re calling Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Block 15 IPAs. OK, it’s an all-IPA flight, but we swear the brewery brews all styles.

Peaks and Pints Beer Flight: Block 15 IPAs

Block 15 Tangerines & Elephants

6.5% ABV

Brewed with heaps of tangerine, this luscious IPA is amplified with a citrus-forward hop duo of Amarillo and Centennial, balanced with notes pine resin. “Doo doo doo, brewed out our back door,” sings Block 15.

Block 15 Paradise Inferno

6.9% ABV

Block 15 brewed this new West Coast IPA to try the experimental hop, HS16660. The result is sweet citrus, bright tropical, and an herbaceous kick pop from a dry and crisp base.

Block 15 A Nugg Hugg

7% ABV

Block 15’s 2024 Nugg Hugg showcases the Corvallis brewery’s dedication to hop CO2 extracts and cryogenically harvested lupulin powder, a yellowish substance obtained from oil- and acid-rich glands on the hop flower. Explosively aromatic with sweetly dank bud, candied peaches, mango and spruce, its flavor blends subtle pineapple and peach with a not-so-subtle embrace of dank and fruity herbs, finishing with a lingering wave of resinous pine. 

Block 15 Scientifical

7% ABV

Don your lab coat and imbibe this supercritical display of dankness. Block 15 layers waves of sticky, resinous hop goodness on a delicate malt base to scientifically flavorize this delicious, hoppy IPA.

Block 15 Sticky Hands

8.1% ABV

Block 15’s Sticky Hands double IPA is a “Hop Experience Ale” featuring ample additions of sticky, resinous, lupulin-packed hop buds grown in the Pacific Northwest. Sticky Hands begins with an aromatic blast of tropical fruits, citrus, and dank herbs; transitions into luscious hop flavor; and ends with a balanced bitter finish, gently propped up by pale malted barley and fermented with Block 15’s privately banked Brewers yeast.
