This weekend’s beer was a double winner in my book.
The Double IPA was not only a deliciously crisp, hoppy beer, but by drinking a brew from Elevation Beer Co, I was able to support their meaningful partnership with the Conservation Alliance. Based in Poncha Springs, Colorado, they are a part of protecting the wild parts of America and making sure that they are there for everyone to enjoy for years to come.
Cheers to that! Knowing they are working to keep America beautiful and accessible, I’d buy their beers even if they weren’t good (but they are good, so, that makes it easy).
As for the actual beer itself, the Double IPA is a great example of how a double India pale ale should taste. A classic IPA gold, you can smell the hoppiness as soon as you open the can. There is a crisp, almost spicy, hop bite on the front end, with a refreshing citrus note on the backend. Nothing tastes out of place. Elevation brewed the Double with 5 different hops over the course of 7 different addition points (I’d love to hear about that process) and created one delicious beer.
You should also check out some of Elevation’s other beers, they look amazing. You can find their beers in 800 liquor stores across Colorado, so be sure to give them a try!
That wraps up this weeks review, and remember, get out then and unleash your adventure!
