So what is this Azacca IPA all about?
With a sun dance in mind, Diamond Knot Craft Brewing is releasing its take on tropical magic – Azacca IPA – on April 4, 2017.
This single hop, limited release beer uses Azacca hops from Roy Farms in Moxie, Wash. Azacca hops are dwarf hops grown on low trellises. What nature doesn’t put in the height of the vines, it packs into the hop flowers themselves.
This beer pours rich golden in color with a slight dry hop haze. There is the aroma of sweet honey dew that leads to the tropical flavors of papaya and mango. This is a full-bodied IPA paired with a clean finish and lingering floral notes. Azacca IPA details: 6.5% ABV, 40 IBUs.
Azacca hops are all about tropical fruit flavors. Our Azacca diver, Lucky, decided to try it himself and pulled up a stool at the tiki bar for a pint or two. The label art, drawn by Whidbey Island artist Dave Gignac and made beautiful by Snohomish’s Sibyl Design, embraces the tropic love.
Diamond Knot’s Azacca IPA will be available on draft and in 22 oz. bottles in limited supply.
