In Seattle's Fremont neighborhood, lies The Sixgill, and the new location for the annual "Imperial India Pale Ale Invitational". Previously hosted in the Ballard neighborhood, at The Noble Fir, the 'Invitational is an opportunity to choose from several Imperial/Double India Pale Ales, in one location.

BJCP definition of Imperial / Double India Pale Ale

A recent American innovation reflecting the trend of American craft brewers “pushing the envelope” to satisfy the need of hop aficionados for increasingly intense products. The adjective “Imperial” is arbitrary and simply implies a stronger version of an IPA; “double,” “extra,” “extreme,” or any other variety of adjectives would be equally valid.

Currently, the following beers will be available on draft, during the event.

  • 21st Amendment Hop Crisis Imperial IPA
  • Avery Anniversary Ale Imperial India Brown
  • Bear Republic Mach 10 Imperial IPA
  • Black Market Liberation Imperial IPA
  • Boundary Bay Imperial IPA
