It’s the season to layer up and to bring this message home, Seattle’s Pike Brewing has just released Layer Up Double West Coast IPA. This new fall seasonal is now making its rounds in taprooms and beer stores on draft and in six-pack, 12 ounce cans.
Layer Up is described as capturing the essence of fall with its rich, robust flavors and a distinct hop profile that showcases the bounty of the season. The modern West Coast IPA is filled with uplifting fruity and dank flavors along with notes of candied citrus, pineapple, and dank sticky resin and a mid-palate linger plus dry finish. This beer is all about those bright summer day notes paired with a higher 8.5% ABV punch for those chillier nights ideal for layering up!
“Layer Up is a labor of love that captures the spirit of Pacific Northwest fall in every drop,” said Leslie Shore, Pike Brewing’s Head Brewer. “We’ve carefully crafted this brew to take you on a journey through the transition of seasons, with layers of flavor that unfold with each sip. It’s the perfect companion for cozy autumn evenings and gatherings with friends.”
Layer Up Double West Coast IPA is a limited-release beer that’s currently available on draft and in 6-pack, 12oz cans through October at select retailers and Pubs throughout the Puget Sound Region. It can also be found at the Pike Pub, Pike Fish Bar and Pike Taproom Ballard.
