One Giant Leap (2021) | Alvarado Street Brewery
Style: IPA - Triple New England
Description: 2021 Release While making beer isn't quite akin to taking the first step on the moon, the nature of the industry lies upon progression through some element of risk. If we aren't trying new things, how will we know what's possible? This beer is a nod towards taking that leap; fermented with a blend of expressive yeast strains for maximum ester production and thorough attenuation, coupled with experimentation in water and a hopping schedule far from ordinary. The result is an Imperial IPA with an enormously complex fruit character, balanced bitterness, and palate weight as soft as a feather for extraordinary drinkability.
