Event Details & Beer List

Dry-Hopped Sunflower IPA

Available at all our Oregon and Vancouver, Wa. locations

Dry-Hopped Sunflower IPAWe’ve added more bloom to our traditional Sunflower IPA recipe, complete with an array of hop varieties for added aroma and hop flavor, to brew up one batch of Dry-Hopped Sunflower IPA. Starting July 1, these limited-edition bottles of Dry-Hopped Sunflower IPA are available until this single batch, limited release is sold out. You can find the 22-ounce bottles at all our Oregon and Vancouver, Wash. locations  for $5.10 each.

What is our secret Sunflower recipe, you ask? We brewed with Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic hops and dry-hopped with Falconer’s Flight 7 C’s pellets. We updated the hopping to better reflect current trends in late-addition hopping and dry-hopping techniques – both of which add hop flavor and aroma to the brew. The varieties we chose should impart citrus and tropical fruit character with a mellow but present hop bitterness backed up with a simple malt bill designed to provide a balanced sweetness, maximize body, mouthfeel and head retention while staying out of the way of the hops and resulting in an ABV of 6.3%.

Enjoy a taste of our lil’ tribute to the evolution of Oregon craft beer – if you act quickly to get your hands on a bottle!
