Strata Fortress IPA is a medium bodied interpretation of the West Coast IPA style. This brew features a brand new hop varietal grown in the pacific Northwest, Strata. The addition of Strata hops bring forth an array of aromatic fruit notes including peach, strawberry, and light citrus. Traditional west coast hop varietals (Centennial and Cascade) balance the fruit with citrus and pine notes complimenting the dank characteristics of Strata during the dry hopping stage. This straw colored ale has a balanced bitterness with a soft malty finish as we pay homage to the West Coast IPA.
