COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Assertive hoppy & floral west coast style IPA. Pike Space Needle Golden IPA is 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 customers favorite IPAs. This beer won a blind tasting competition to be the commemorative beer for the Space Needles 50th anniversary in 2012. It was so well received that it has been added to Pikes year round collection. It was 1962 and the world came to Seattle for the Worlds Fair and its futuristic symbol, the Space Needle. The beer served at the 62 Worlds 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 customers favorite IPAs.

Bottle at tderoeck's place. Malty, danky, hoppy, it's ok as a beer, but not as good as an IPA. Comes close to a Belgian boring hoppy.
