Sideways Rain IPA (CA Beer Shipping)
West Coast IPA | 6.3%
Sideways Rain, our latest Smog Days IPA, is a 6.3% West Coast IPA brewed in collaboration with one of the best hops purveyors around, Yakima Chief Hops! They gave us access to a super cool, super-cutting edge new hop blend called Cryo Pop™ for this version of Smog Days. Cryo Pop™ hop blend contains hop varieties that are loaded with beer-soluble compounds that survive harsh brewing processes including heat, fermentation, and CO2 scrubbing. By maximizing concentrations of the most impactful and complimentary hop compounds, this amazing blend offers an incredibly powerful hop that creates a true ‘pop’ of aromas in beers. This blend delivers massive tropical, stone fruit, and citrus aromas. We've also got some Ahtanum, Ekuanot hops in there for an added flavor punch. Sideways Rain is a bright and drinkable IPA that brings refreshing flavors of juicy fruit gum, gooseberry, and touches of geranium all atop a cracker malt profile. This is a super fun beer that is not to be missed!
Sideways Rain is the latest release in the Smog Days IPA Series, a collection of experimental IPAs alternating between West Coast and hazy IPAs.
