Center Fielder Extra Pale Ale
6.5% ABV | 75 IBU
Loaded with 7 varieties of juicy, heavy hitting hops, The Center Fielder boasts all the flavor you’d expect from a world class IPA, with the malt complexity of a classic red ale. Amber in color, tropical, and bright, this distinctive offering is sure to please even the most fastidious lupulin lovers.
Don’t Call it a Comeback
6.9% ABV | 100 IBU
Don’t Call It a Comeback is the fourth and final installment in our quest to create this year’s NM IPA Challenge winner. The simple malt base was outfitted with an arsenal of hops and lupulin powder capable of knocking out a full-grown bear.
Mammoths on Parade
8.5% ABV | 20 IBU
For this Exotic Elephants offering we decided to go prehistoric. Loaded with extra fruit puree and a supersized malt bill, Mammoths on Parade comes in at a whopping 8.5% yet remains refreshing and drinkable. Perfect for these warm Southwestern nights, Mammoths on Parade is sure to become extinct before you know it.
Summer in Hallertau
5.3% ABV | 20 IBU
What do you do with a glut of noble hops? Recklessly pack them in, 5 pounds per barrel at a time, into a light pale ale! Summer in Hallertau is a noble hop experience like no other beer you’ve had. A medium-light body with a slight toast character hides in the background, while German Hallertau and Czech Saaz are front and center. It’s grassy, slightly woody, and surprisingly fruity with hints of orange and tangerine.
5.6% ABV | 10 IBU
Sometimes our brewers get a wild hair. After starting with a hefeweizen-esque base, we let things get…weird. Liquid unsweet chocolate was added to the end of boil along with lactose for a mild sweetness and enhanced body. Strawberry and banana purees were added to the fermenter where a hefeweizen yeast gives it an additional banana-y kick. The result is a palate-stumping flavor combo of banana, strawberry, and chocolate reminiscent of your favorite three-flavor sundae.
4.8% ABV | 20 IBU
Where IPAs are skewed toward hops being front and center, blonde ales are a study in balance, refreshment, and malt profiles. Bosque Blonde is a brilliant pale straw-colored ale with a light malt sweetness and just enough late addition hops to add flavor and aromatic nuance. Whether you’re new to craft beer or are a seasoned connoisseur, this beer is sure to quench your thirst.
