Eagle Harbor is our interpretation of a classic Northwest IPA. Recently the ’More is More!’ camp have moved this noble style ever in the direction of increased alcohol and bitterness, flashy new hop varieties, and a tendency towards one-upsmanship. We’ve taken a step back, thought about what makes a great every-day IPA, and returned to our beloved NW IPA’s roots. Hops include classic varieties, including Cascade, Nugget, Centennial, Apollo, and US Tettenang. Malts: ESB, Crystal 40, Special Aromatic, Wheat, Carahell, and Sour. Dryhopped and ran through several pounds of whole leaf Cascade in our hopback, Eagle Harbor presents a firm hop aroma, supported by enough malt character to keep you coming back for more.

On tap @ Bainbridge Island, shared with jcnielsen. Pours a burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Grapefruity, slightly piney, sappy aroma. Moderate sweetness. Fairly high bitterness. Lots of citrus fruits. Pretty standard but easy drinking.
