From Double Mountain:
Hood River, OR - June 1st, 2016 – To the excitement of many craft beer fans, Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom releases seasonal favorite, the Cluster Single-Hop IPA in bottles for the fourth year. 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 2016.
"It's fun to put cluster hops in the limelight. They show off their diversity and depth. At the end of a crazy day, this beer compliments a wind down exceptionally well. I'll drink to that.”---Brewer, Matt Coughlin

Description: The oft forgotten Cluster hop was the dominant hop in the US brewing industry for centuries. With this single hop IPA, we’re putting it in the spotlight. Clusters were added at every stage of the brewing process, allowing a good taste of the complexity and versatility of this hop. A more delicate floral note at the top leads you deeper in to 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.
