Sierra Nevada, Dankful IPA. We celebrate #ipaday every year, but this is no ordinary year. Today, we're proud to announce Dankful IPA, a hop-forward West Coast IPA that supports nonprofits working in our communities. The beer has a resinous kick with notes of pine and tropical fruit. Through our Dankful program, we've committed at least $1 million in donations this year, and are kicking things off with a $250,000 donation to @wckitchen. World Central Kitchen has served more than 25 million meals to families facing food insecurity during the COVID crisis through its #chefsforamerica program, while also providing jobs for restaurant workers. We're Dankful for that. 7.4%
Firestone Walker, Double Jack. Welcome back, old friend. Double Jack, the double IPA we know and love, is back for a limited time!

The result is a massively hopped yet improbably balanced Double IPA, and an enduring throwback to the freewheeling origins of the West Coast style. Enjoy bright grapefruit and tangerine American hop aromas, with flavors of stone fruit and pine in this seasonal release. 9.5%

Brewed with Weyerman Barke Pilsner, Marzen, and Caramunich malts.

Pleasure Wave. We've loaded up Pleasure Wave with some of the finest designer hops we could get our hands on, but more specifically, hops that carry high levels of thiols. These teeny, tiny, compounds make a big impact on tropical aromatics, and in this beer, it's all about pungent notes of passionfruit, guava, and crushed gooseberry. This is a modern West Coast IPA, and finishes dry with just the right amount of bitterness. 7%
Riot Punch. New age double IPA that's heavily impacted by the bright peach & stone fruit notes imparted by expressive yeast.
