West-Coast Glutton – a double red IPA

image Special thanks to J. Wilson of Prescott, IA who is the 2012 Beerdrinker of the Year (Competition held annually by Wynkoop Brewpub).   Jay dreamed up the name for this beer several years ago, I remember him telling me about it.  For those who don’t “get the joke”  I’ll only explain it once.  California and the Northwest States have been hop-heads for over a decade and double IPA’s came and some even claim to have triple-IPA’s and other hop monsters!  So West-Coast Glutton is a double IPA with a butt-load of hops.  Twice as much as our regular IPA, so really a DOUBLE!  Cascade and Zythos hops are featured in this ale for a citrus-infused hoptastic taste sensation. I also didn’t want another light colored beer but something with a backbone, so this is an impressive 10.0%ABV reddish-colored beer.  (Served  responsibly in 10oz snifter glasses.) 

The much awaited release is Friday April 6th at 4PM at the Yak and Yeti Brewpub in Olde Town Arvada.  See you here.
