Santa Cruz Brown IPA #1
- Release Number: 1

- Brew Date: 12/19/11
- Pack Date: 1/16/12
- Brewery: Salt Lake City
- Notes: An Epic interpretation of the recent American trend of brewing Black IPAs, our Santa Cruz Brown is a true hybrid. Inspired by our brewer Kyle̢?0089?0073 desire to have it all, we combine the rich backbone and color of a brown ale with robust American Hops common in IPAs for something totally unique. Maris Otter pale malt along with Munich, CaraMunich, and Chocolate malts create a balance between sweet and roasty that is then assaulted by four varieties of Pacific Northwest hops including super high alpha variety Apollo in the hop-back and dry hop stage. The piney, herbal flavors that result make this a dark beer for hop lovers.
- Malt: Maris Otter, 2-Row Chocolate Malt, Munich Malt, 2-Row Carapils, CaraMunich II.
- Boil: Nugget, Cascade, Centennial, Apollo.
