McMenamins has released its second IPA in its new Limited Edition IPA Series with its Alienator IPA. A few months ago McMenamins released Captain Neon’s Mango Double IPA in 16 oz cans and now the brewery has moved on to its second release in this new series of beers.

Limited to only 6,240 cans, Alienator IPA is a hoppy IPA that uses Chinook, Citra and Mosaic hops. These hops provide a bold tropical and fruity aroma with plenty of hop flavor.
