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 customer’s favorite IPA’s. This beer won a blind tasting competition to be the commemorative beer for the Space Needle’s 50th anniversary in 2012. It was so well received that it has been added to Pike’s year round collection. 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.

Smell of grapefruit; medium mouthful, nice carbonation, a bit of spice/heat on the tongue. Bitterness more in the aftertaste. Very drinkable IPA.

Solid IPA. High bitterness. Not a sprightly mouthfeel, but has substance to it. Good zing. Hop notes lean more towards resin. Recommended.

Bottle brought back fresh from the brewery by my wife two weekends ago. My wife is AWESOME! Pours a very hazy honey gold with a lively bubbly off white head that retains splendidly. Aroma is exactly what I want from a fresh PNW IPA: tons of pine and grapefruit rind. The palate likewise is bursting with fresh hoppy goodness, oily and luxurious, with a long lasting bitter finish. This is such a treat!

Happy Ipa day! Pours a hazy golden brown with a a nice off white head with great lacing. Smells of Pine, grapfriut and caramel. Tastes like all the smells I mentioned above plus vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy and a dry finish. Overall this is very balanced for an Ipa and the best I’ve had from Pike Brewing so far.
