COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just in time for the winter doldrums comes GRAVITAR, an aggressively hopped IPA that increases the earth’s gravitational pull by exact 34.2%, according to our estimable brewmaster. It’s got something to do with the experimental hop variety HBC 342 we used — a whopper of hop with citrus, passion fruit, lemon & pineapple notes. There are a mere 15 plants of “342” on the entire earth at the moment… let us know if you like it, maybe they’ll grow more. We sweetened the malt character with honey malt from British Columbia and another sweet aromatic malt from the UK; pale chocolate malt was added for a dash of color. Brewed in honor of the video game console (a.k.a. “Productivity Killer”) recently installed in our break room. 7.2% ABV, 90+BU. Available in limited supply at fine beer bars around the Northwest, and at our Taproom for the next month or so.

Draft at uber. Pours a murky dark amber with a thick dense and creamy tan head that never goes away. Dense caramelly nose showing grapefruit and pine. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast and caramel mid palate with plenty of oily hop presence. Good sturdy long drinking pnw ale.

On tap. Pours cloudy orange-amber. Very little aroma. Flavor is bitter but not especially flavorful, with sufficiently malty foundation to overshadow the hop character. A decent PNW ale, but disappointing given the brewery’s description.

more "wintery" and malty than most West Coast IPA’s. It’s full of flavor, but not super hoppy. tastes like a hoppy amber.

Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured a cloudy reddish amber with a bubbly, off-white head. Earthy, wood-like hop flavor and bitterness with fruity, berry-like yeast esters. Light body, lots of flavor but still very drinkable. Malt sweetness and barley cereal grains in the background.
