This is a true West Coast IPA–it is pale in color, with bracing bitterness, high alcohol content (about 7.4% abv) and a fruity/floral/citrus hop aroma. It is made from a simple malt bill: North American base and pale caramel malt. We use copious amounts of Northwest hops all throughout the boil, with most of it going in within the last 15 minutes. After fermentation is complete, we dry hop it with approximately 1 boatload of each of the same hop varieties.
- OG: 16.5 ºP

Dragoon IPA’s bright hop character and crisp bitterness make it an ideal match for spicy dishes, especially chile verde and phở (Vietnamese noodle soup). The bitterness and carbonation also work really well with sharp cheddars. It must also be said that IPA and pizza are absolute soulmates, a match truly made in heaven.
