Editors Note: in 2012 released as Psace Needle Golden Anniversary IPA.

It was 1962 and the world came to Seattle for the World’s Fair and its futuristic symbol, the Space Needle. The beer served at the ‘62 World’s Fair? Likely nothing at all like this west coast style IPA, generously brewed with five varieties of Yakima Valley aroma and flavoring hops. We then dry hop it with whole-cone Columbus, Summit and Centennial hops, which impart a floral aroma that has catapulted this beer to one of Pike Brewing customer’s favorite IPA’s.
MALT VARIETIES: Munich, Cara-Pils, Malted Wheat
HOP VARIETIES: Chinook, Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, Summit
