IPAs

Cut & Run

West Coast IPA | 6.8% ABV | 65 IBU
You dropped anchor three hours ago. The sun is going down. The search party should have been back by now. British ships are on the horizon. You hear cannons firing. Cannonballs splashing closer and closer. What do you do? A refreshing IPA hopped with Citra, Centennial, Simcoe and Chinook. Grapefruit upfront, accompanied by a layered, citrusy aroma. Crisp maltiness. At nearly 7% ABV, it might be just enough to help you forget the difficult decisions you've had to make along the way. 

 

Socks & Sandals

New England IPA | 6.4% ABV | 61 IBU
One part fashion statement, two parts comfort. Three parts embarrassing the kids. We named this beer after our favorite Santa Cruz tourist phenomenon, in hopes that our beer might someday be just as popular. An unfiltered IPA made with oats, Citra, Centennial, Simcoe, and Chinook, using less traditional hopping techniques. More juicy and aromatic with less bitterness up front.

 

Double Socks and Sandals

IIPA | 7.9% ABV | 75 IBU
More Socks and Sandals than that one time The Beach Boys played a free show at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. This double IPA is warm, fuzzy, and comfortable, yet practical. Simple, yellow malt bill made chewier by oats; creating a grand stage for big hop aromas and flavors from Centennial, Citra, Chinook and Simcoe.

 

New Zengland

New England style IPA | 6.6% ABV
[pronounced New Zing-land] AKA An Aussie in Burlington. We married two of our favorite beer profiles: a juicy, cloudy, straw-colored New England style IPA, paired with three of our favorite hops from New Zealand; Nelson Sauvin, Motueka and Southern Cross. This unfiltered beer has an incredibly soft mouth feel to compliment the hop characteristics of white wine grapes, gooseberries, and fresh-squeezed citrus.

 

Tiki Decor

Lactose IPA | 6.8% ABV
We're a beach tourism town. We like tiki decor. We're all guilty. Let's just embrace it. Let's drink fruity drinks from big ol' ships with bamboo and grass skirts surrounding us. Carved wooden masks, coconuts, and colorful little umbrellas. If this isn't nice, I don't know what is. Tiki Decor is a series of lactose IPAs infused with vanilla beans and rotating fruits. We choose a complimentary fruity hop profile and let loose with additives. Check our tap room and social media for the latest iteration.

 

Mankini

New England style IPA | 6.4% ABV
It leaves nothing to the imagination. All upfront, all right there for the world to see. It says "here I am!" and is not ashamed. It says it has nothing to hide and means it. Bold like neon. Brave like new love. This beer puts itself out there in new and inventive ways. We used extra soft water, oats, and wheat to give Citra and Galaxy hops the confidence to dance bravely along the shore with a maybe slightly embarrassed Vermont Yeast in tow.

 

Fruit of the Loin

New England style IPA | 6.4% ABV
An IPA bursting with melon, tropical fruit aroma, and just a pinch of lime zest. 
We hopped it with Vic Secret, Motueka and Citra and balanced it with a light malt bill. 
“Fruit of the Loin” may be a stretch of a pun about the hop Vic Secret but we’re excited about what these hops are doing as they interact with our soft water profiles and supportive malt bills.

 

Tiny Umbrella

Tropical IPA | 6.5% ABV | 62 IBU
This IPA sits somewhere between the west and east coasts in terms of style, water profile and malt bill. Hopped with some of the sexiest hops to our name — Nelson, Mosaic and Citra — we compliment these tropical fruit notes with a yeast that introduces a slight funk over time. Pineapple, mango and supporting characteristics of peach come forward on the nose and it finishes dry and slightly bitter to satisfy them crazy west-coast palates. 

 

Walk the Dank

IIPA | 8.3% ABV | 75 IBU
We took the stinkiest, stickiest, dankest hops we could get our hands on, we lined them up, accused them of attempting a mutiny, and one by one we marched them off the plank and into a whirlpool of thick, delicious wort. Death to Simcoe! Death to Mosaic! Death to Nelson!
