GET TO KNOW YOUR BEER
It’s arguable that the IPA surge in modern craft beer was led by the West Coast IPA. Breweries like Stone, Firestone Walker, Lagunitas, Green Flash, Bear Republic, and Russian River all had early iconic IPAs that are still held in a position of reverence with the craft beer public. These beers feature big bodies ranging from pale to copper and copious amounts hops with primary characteristics of citrus and pine.
The Redwood IPA is a homage to California and all the trail blazing IPAs that came before it. It’s malt body consists of 88% 2-Row and 12% Caramel 60L to yield a burnt orange color that finishes with enough sweet caramel finish to balance the hop bitterness.
This beer is all about the hops! To pack all the hop flavor and aromatics in without getting overly bitter, we start with a 30 minute addition of Centennial for 31 IBUs, a 20 minute addition of CTZ for 24 IBUs, a 10 minute addition of Cascade for 6 IBUs, and another aromatic addition of Cascade. In the dry hop we add a bucket load of Centennial and Simcoe to really highlight the piny profile. The result is an IPA layered with pine and citrus throughout the flavor profile.

We source all our grains from the same growers and suppliers as major craft breweries and home brewers alike. We pack the grains into pre-portion bags so you can just dump them in. We use a combination of raw hops and SteamHops, which are hops that have been pre-"boiled" to match the flavor profile of 15/30/60 min boils without actually boiling. Choose from our selection of yeast packets, or source and add your own. You can control the fermentation schedule to match your strain.
