POG ROCK MILKSHAKE DIPA, Track 7 Brewing: Sacramento’s Track 7 Brewing rushed its new tropical double IPA to Western Washington to get in on the Seattle Beer Week haps. This double milkshake IPA is a tropical medley of passionfruit, orange and guava. 8.2%, 16oz

They specialize in small batch recipes making an effort to support and promote local agriculture. Fat orange Cat teamed up with Evil twin Brewing to brew a hazy double IPA, Vito The Beer Whale Cat. It has the classic mouthfeel, appearance, and front palate of a NEIPA that is bursting with citrus fruit flavors — thanks to Azacca and Simcoe hops — but the back palate has a healthy dose of pine and grass. 8%, 16oz
