Hood River, OR - June 1st, 2015 -A Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom seasonal favorite, the Cluster Single-Hop IPA returns in bottles for the third year with a fresh new label. This unique and versatile IPA is currently available on draft and by bottle at the Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom located in downtown Hood River. Cluster can be found throughout the Northwest, British Columbia, and Southern California in early June 2015.
"We are excited about the rework of the Cluster label. The starry moonscape really stands out on the shelves." Head Brewmaster/owner Matt Swihart talks about this year's Cluster batch. "For a magical reason that remains a mystery to me, the farmer gods treated us to an excellent crop on the Clusters in 2014, so this year's beer is exceptional crisp, tasty and wonderfully balanced. This is my favorite year so far... but look out 2016."
Description: The oft forgotten Cluster hop was the dominant hop in the US brewing industry for centuries. With the Cluster, we’re bringing this beauty of a hop back into the limelight. Clusters were added at every stage of the brewing process, allowing a good taste of the hop’s complexity and versatility. A more delicate floral note at the top leads you deeper into a grove of pineapple and orange, and a dewy herbal character follows closely behind. It glows like an early summer sunset, has a clean bitterness, and dried out nicely, making it highly drinkable. ABV 7.3%, 85 BU
