- THE PIKE STORY
This double IPA is like a sunny vacation in the middle of winter. A bright, apricot colored beer, Pike Doubble Hopulus derives enticing flavors and aromas of stone fruits, pine and melon from its complex hop blend. Our brewers have balanced these tastes with rich malt flavors which will bring you back for sip after sip. This layered and smooth IPA clocks in at 8.5% ABV and is brewed with Chinook, Falconer’s Flight and Simcoe hops and then dry hopped with more Simcoe and Amarillo.
In the late 18th century English brewers began to export ale to India, using hops as a natural preservative. Humulus lupulus, the Latin name for hops, also added flavor and aroma. This was the heyday of India Pale Ale, but by the mid 1900’s the hop intensive style was almost lost. Washington State is America’s hop capital and breweries in the Pacific Northwest revived the IPA style in the 1980’s. The trend spread nationally and ultimately influenced beers in England and even Belgium. The ‘more is better’ philosophy ultimately led U.S. brewers to double hope these beers. Pike Brewing first brewed Pike Doubble Hopulus in 2009 when it was chosen as the flagship beer for the first Seattle Beer Week.
