Very few things are better after a long Labor Day Weekend hike on the trail than a well-made India Pale Ale. It’s almost like the beer was made for hiking. Peaks and Pints New Beers In Stock 8.30.19: IPAs features six new beers for cooler bagging today. Cheers!

Gigantic Brewing

ELECTRO HAZY IPA: Brewed with Parallel 49 Brewing from Vancouver, B.C., this Gigantic Brewing hazy IPA is loaded with Lotus, Citra and Crystal hops for citrus and tropical flavors. 7.5%

Matchless Brewing

HOPS: THE NEW FRUIT: Matchless Brewing‘s West Coast Style IPA doesn’t shy away from the traditional bitterness of a true IPA while at the same time showcasing bold tropical fruit character. It starts off with a nose of ripe pineapple and papaya, then follows through with mango and nectarine on the palate and finishes with notes of cantaloupe and honeydew. 7%

Reuben’s Brews

HOP IDOL 2019: Dan Schlegel and Frank Hammack won Hop Idol 2019, the third annual homebrew competition hosted by Reuben’s Brews. Schlegel and Hammack’s hazy IPA took first place over more than 100 entries. They won the right to brew their hazy IPA on Reuben’s brewery system in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood, which is now in cans at Peaks and Pints. It’s tropical and features Sabro hops, the first time the hop entered Reuben’s brewhouse. The Mecca Grade pilsner malt – from an Oregon maltster – also adds a nice bready depth to the malt profile. 7.6%

MOREISH IPA: “1. (of drink) Having a very pleasant taste and making you want more. As in, ‘These Reuben’s Brews IPAs are very moreish, aren’t they?’ This modern IPA is the perfect balance of tropical hops and crisp, bready malts.” 6.7%

Three Magnets Brewing

DANK BREW: Dude, this Three Magnets hazy IPA is brewed with Mosaic Cryo hops, then double dry-hopped with Azacca and Motueka to create a hazy cloud of dank goodness. 7.1%

Two Beers Brewing

SIGNING BONUS IPA: A collaboration brewed with Acquisitions Incorporated, Two Beers‘ tropical IPA is built on a flake free grist of 2 row, Golden Promise, Dextra Pils, and a touch of honey and aromatic malt this round comes out a bright yellow gold with a balanced malt sweetness. Hopped almost exclusive in the whirlpool with equal parts Belma, Citra, and Simcoe, then dry hopped twice — Citra and Simcoe followed by all Belma — gives off aromas of strawberry and orange sherbert backed by malt sweetness. 5%
