Flower Power – IPA: 
Our wildly popular IPA is simultaneously punchy & soothing with a big body finish that boasts pineapple
and grapefruit. ABV 7.5%

Dark Vine – Black IPA: 
A hoppy black IPA bursting with so much flavor that you might think you're tasting double. Intensely floral
nose, surprisingly light body, and strong bitter finish. ABV 9.5%

Double Zilla – Double Red IPA: 
Twice the experience of Cascazilla, we brewed Double Zilla with too many malts to list and an excess of
American hops. Russet color, aggressively hoppy aroma & flavor, rich body, and fiery finish. ABV 11%

The Creeker – Double IPA: 
 By no means an ordinary Double IPA. Creeker is all hops with little malt body. Intense citrus flavor &
aroma with mischievously easy drinkability. ABV 9%
