Double Mountain Brewery Releases Hop Lion IPA

Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom readies the release of its latest year-round beer offering with its Hop Lion IPA. The official release party will take place on Wednesday, May 24th in Portland from 5:00-8:00pm at Bunk Bar that’s located at 1028 SE Water Avenue.

“We’ve been experimenting with various hop varieties and techniques for over a year on this new year-round IPA,” states Matt Swihart, Double Mountain Brewmaster in a statement. “I’m not sure what I like better; the beer or its inspirations of the vibe.”

Tropic resin, tangerine, evergreen, and the earthy scent of Northwest petrichor leap from the nose of this proud IPA. Tangelo and fresh bread stalk closely behind, finishing with orange and dank pine.
6.7% ABV
65 BU
