West Coast Double IPA (WCD IPA) is a liquid invitation from the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company to Beer Camp Across America. This event is a seven city beer festival starting in Chico, CA at the original Sierra Nevada location and ending in Mills River, NC at their new brewery. Hundreds of regional breweries will be serving beer along the route. Our own South Dakota brewery, Crow Peak Brewing, will be at the Denver, CO stop. The WCD IPA is the first special release beer from Sierra Nevada inviting everyone to take part in the celebration. A special collection of 12 collaboration beers will also be released in 12 packs and special draft kegs to promote the events. The twelve pack will be a collaboration between Sierra Nevada Brewing and twelve top United States craft breweries. The regional breweries form our area participating include Oskar Blues Brewery of Longmont CO and New Glarus Brewing of New Glarus, WI. This website will be reviewing the collection, so be sure to return for updates. Visit your local craft beer stores and bars to sample these special beers!
The West Coast Double IPA pours out medium gold with a generous white head into an IPA glass. There is a great citrus and tropical fruit aroma. The light malt body lets the combination of five hops shine through. This 8.5% ABV beer is a hop lovers treat! Be sure to try it if you love hops!
