Diamond Knot Whip Ale

Brewed by Diamond Knot Brewery
Mukilteo, Washington USA
6% American Pale Ale | 72 Ratings | 30 IBU | Special Release |
Diamond Knot Brewery has been working with Seattle metal legend Michael "Whip" Wilton of Queensryche for quite some time to perfect the recipe for the new Whip Ale. And the time has come to "release the beast." Diamond Knot will tap the first keg of Whip Ale on May 12 at 6:00 p.m. at its 621 Front Street Alehouse. Whip Ale is an American Pale Ale bittered with Nugget, Simcoe and Cascade hops. Pale, Caramel and Vienna malts provide a balance to the bright, citrusy hop flavors. American Ale Yeast generates a clean, crisp finish.
