The flavor: cold. The crushability: maximum. Ice is our very first pils, and it brings the noise. Hopped with Czech Saaz and Australian Summer hops, before, like, so many weeks of lagering, Ice packs the flavor of the mighty San Diego mountains into a compact 4.8% ABV package
Pluots are some of our favorite fruits. Created by cross-breeding apricots and plums, there are dozens of varieties with an amazing range of color and flavor. All through the summer, Blossom Bluff Orchards picks each variety at its peak: Dapple Dandy, Honey Punch, Flavor Queen, Black Kat & Dapple Jack were all added to a sour blonde ale and aged in wine barrels to create this funky oak-aged brew.
This exploration in experimental hops starts with a hefty dose of Denali, and yet-to-renamed #07277 hops, balanced by a firm malt backbone. We dry-hop with two pounds per barrel for an intensely aromatic blend of pineapple, apricot and citrus, and a lingering spicy finish.
The Harlot is an extremely easy to drink crisp, light, and dry Belgian Extra. The beer uses a pilsner-lager recipe as its base, but we ferment the beer using one of our house Belgian ale yeast strains.
A well balanced set of floral hops, light malts, and the Belgian yeast all lend to the highly versatile and delicate presence exhibited in the midst of this beer’s complexity.
The Harlot is brewed in the tradition of a lost style of beer typical in the border region between Belgium and the Czech Republic.
Named after the region of Hawaii from which it hails, Ka’u is produced from some of the world’s rarest coffee beans. Slow-grown beneficiaries of nutrient-rich volcanic soil and idyllic climate, Ka’u offers nuances of caramel and hazelnut plus a soft floral character, all of which marry seamlessly with natural sweetness from the vanilla and coconut
Rich espresso and chocolate notes from the beer meld with sweet toasted coconut, before aging for several months in fresh bourbon barrels. The barrels impart the beer with additional hints of coconut and vanilla for a new take on this classic American dessert.
The Butcher is a big imperial stout with an overwhelming roasted malt characteristic. It has a velvety smooth, yet full, mouthfeel that hides any alcohol tones. A thick, dense, dark chocolate-colored head delivers aromas of roast, and the flavors are heavily toasty and biscuity, lingering on the tongue.
AleSmith IPA showcases the versatility of American hops. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA.
Brewed using 6 different NW varieties of hops at over 2.5 pounds per barrel, RPM IPA focuses on extreme hoppiness rather than bitterness. It’s golden to copper in color with a complex malt profile that will not overshadow the hops.
This beer is an ode to the popular food found south of the border--fresh mango sprinkled with Tajin. Our version takes a classic American IPA and turns up the heat with a blend of dried chili, lime, and salt (our spin on Tajin), and a heafty dose of fresh mango puree. The end result is a hop-forward IPA bursting with tropical fruit, and a subtle slightly earthy chili spiciness.
Inspired by the island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passion fruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA.
The Apprentice is dry, medium bodied, and an exceptionally hoppy IPA with assertive bitterness. Strong pine and bitter citrus flavor come forward, whereas grapefruit citrus undertones accent the dry finish on this delicious beer.
The Bachelor cannot stay wedded to a single hop variety, so every time that we brew this single-hopped beer you can look for the hop variety to change. Each variation of The Bachelor uses the same basic malt recipe and hopping schedule, yet because each hop is different, there might be a slight adjustment to the bittering hop addition in order to achieve the level of bitterness that we are looking for.
Each version of the Bachelor is a delicious educational exercise for learning about one of our favorite beer ingredients: the hop!
The Dandy is a balanced IPA with a slight malt presence that accentuates moderate hop bitterness. Flavors and aromas of grapefruit, citrus and peppery hops intermingle against an understated sweet-malt character followed by a dry bitterness in the finish.
The Haberdasher is an English-style IPA, brewed with all English malts and all English hops. Its substantial malt presence balances artfully with its earthy English hop-bill, making for an extremely drinkable beer that is unlike anything else that we brew.
The nose almost comes across as caramel, but when you drink, you will find that it is not sweet. Dark, toasty, and lightly sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, biscuit, and caramel, this beer is complex but very drinkable. A rustic but balanced beer without a strong hop presence, definitely made for the malt lovers of the old world.
