American Double/Imperial IPA

Smash Galaxy IPA

Galaxy hops are described as fruity, tropical, even juicy, with understated citrus and passion fruit notes. Combined with a mildly sweet malt base, this IPA is like no other. With bitterness to balance the malt flavor, this beer is light in color, but not in flavor. This simple recipe provides a ton of intriguing hop aroma and flavor.

Rhinelander Thumper IPA

Fiercely hopped and hopped again, Thumper IPA "keeps on going and going" to tantalize the tongue.

Rhinelander Imperial Jack

This double IPA is the "grand daddy of them all." Imperial Jack is robust, malty, and heavily hopped brew that is medium amber in color and double hoppy.

Chillwave

With a flash of Mosaic hops and a kiss of honey malt, Chillwave is "a rush in a bottle." Made of Harrington 2-row base, caramel 45, and honey malts, this brew has a hop-forward flavor with a balanced blend of Mosaic and Nugget hops.

Bad Axe

Bad Axe is brewed with a mix of Columbus and Centennial hops, it pours pale amber, and goes down surprisingly easy. It was the 2013 Rochester Craft Beer Expo winner for Best Beer and as Big Wood notes, "this one might take a few trees down without trying."

Oracle DIPA

The Oracle DIPA brew places hop intensity first and foremost, making only the slightest concession to malt and balance. There is an aromatic punch of dry-hop sessions with hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. Resinous, citrusy hop flavors mixed with aggressive bitterness from a massive kettle addition deliver on that aromatic promise.

Hoptimum

Hoptimum is a "hurricane of whole-cone hop flavor." Hopped, dry hopped and torpedoed for incredible hop flavor and complexity, Hoptimum is the "pinnacle of whole-cone hoppiness" and the biggest Imperial IPA Sierra Nevada has ever produced. It features resinous “new school” hop varieties: Magnum, Chinook, Simcoe, Citra and a new experimental hop variety exclusive to Sierra Nevada. With intense hop flavors and aromas of grapefruit rind, pine, herbs and tropical fruit, Hoptimum is an aggressive drinking experience. 

Whole Hog IPA

Whole Hog 6-Hop I.P.A. has a deep floral hop aroma combined with notes of baked citrus. Clean maltiness supports a dominant complexity of six varieties of hops and creates a solid mouthfeel. This gives way to a lingering finish of supple hop bitterness, tangy citrus fruit and robust malt.
