Pike Brewing announces the release of a spring IPA. Brewed to commemorate Saint George’s Day (April 23), this one is an homage to the patron saint of England, who died in 303 AD. Saint George’s emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag. He is recognized throughout the world as the dragon-slaying patron saint of England.
Here’s the official notice from the brewery:
Slay your dragons with a Pike! This British style IPA is brewed for a Northwest palate. Cascade, Centennial and Summit hop aromas will welcome you to this glass that has a biscuity malt flavor. This balance of malt and hops, combined with an ABV of 5.8 %, make Pike Dragon Slayer IPA a very drinkable IPA.
Pike Dragon Slayer IPA is brewed to commemorate Saint George’s Day and in special recognition of our local pubs that keep the English public house tradition alive. Whether you have a princess to save or not, like Saint George, we suggest you slay your dragons with a Pike.
MALT VARIETIES: ESB, Munich, Maris Otter, Carapils, Malted Wheat
HOP VARIETIES: Summit, Centennial, Cascade. Dry hopped with Centennial and Summit
