Muddy and darkly malty, this spring seasonal is Redhook's ode to Seattle's love affair with coffee. Rich, roasty and tinged with caramel and lactose, it brings the nose and flavor of a sweet espresso at 5.5% ABV.
6.2% ABV IPA, brewed with Idaho 7, Amarillo and Mosaic hops.
Jam Band burst onto the scene this year as an improvised fusion of dark berry flavors and zippy citrus chords. The rhythmic grooves of blueberry, raspberry and tart cherry accompany a simple malt base to create an easy-drinking, all-season beer worthy of an encore at 5.9% ABV.
Belgian White Ale brewed with Lactose, Raspberry, and conditioned on Madagascar vanilla beans.

Some like it sweet. Columbus, Amarillo, El Dorado and Azacca hops are balanced with notes of tropical fruit, candy, bubble gum, candied orange and pink grapefruit. Hazy and juicy, this 6.6% ABV bringback will enjoy a limited can release.
Aged in Chardonnay barrels for one year, this unfiltered Saison-style ale brewed with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis is full of tropical fruit and citrus flavor culminating in a funky, dry finish. Springhouse Brett defies its 6.1% alcohol in an exercise of balance, subtlety and respect.
Blonde, boozy (7.5% ABV) and light-bodied, this Belgian-style tripel is getting the bottle treatment for the first time. Its bready character is offset by notes of ester and sweet summer fruit, making it dangerously drinkable.
Allagash add two pounds of blueberries per gallon to sour red beer and age it for six months in a red wine barrel. The resulting beer is dark violet in color, with earthy aromas of blueberry and oak, and juicy, tart flavors of blueberry.
