Overlooked by anyone in Seattle, due to the start of Seattle Beer Week, Pint Defiance in Tacoma has announced the release of a special collaboration. Brewed at Narrows Brewing Company, co-owners Joel Steadman and Margo Beaver conceived of a unique Hazy IPA with head brewer Matt Rhodes.
Starting with Slovenian hop varietals Fox, Wolf, and Dragon; the trio sought to brew three unique beers which represented their interests. The end result was two beers already released and this one, Dragon IPA. With notes tropical notes of passion fruit, as well as stone fruit, summer melon and a bit of sweet pepper; Dragon IPA is soft on the palate while inspiring thoughts of a beach picnic.
More thoughts from the Narrows Brewing and Pint Defiance
This IPA has a pillowy soft malt bill largely comprised of pilsner and wheat which serves as the ideal compliment to the lively, juicy hops! Dragon was brewed by the Narrows team of Matt, Sean, and Zach with "Help" (mostly drinking and pointing) from Pint Defiance representatives, Barry and Matt.
Already 'tapped' at Pint Defiance, this past Friday (May 10th), look for Dragon IPA from Narrows Brewing at Pint Defiance.
Pint Defiance is located at 2049 Mildred Street West in Tacoma, WA 98466. For more information including hours and beers, visit http://www.pintdefiance.com/.
