11th HOUR IPA
11th Hour IPA is an American India pale ale. The style is characterized by a prominent hop aroma with citrusy or resinous/piney character due to the use of American hops such as Cascade and Centennial. The appearance of 11th Hour IPA is a clear, golden color with a nice white head. This traditional American IPA has a moderate piney/citrusy hop flavor and medium-high hop bitterness that is supported by a malty backbone. This beer has a smooth, medium-bodied mouthfeel with no astringency. 11th Hour IPA is brewed with the finest quality pale ale malt with some caramel malt and Carapils added for color, flavor and mouthfeel adjustment. Centennial and Cascade hops are added to give this IPA its “pure hoppiness” quality. Original Gravity is 14.3°P and alcohol by volume value is 6.5%.

Small Batch Beers
In addition to the year–round offerings, Crow Peak Brewing Company produces several seasonal offerings. The brewers at Crow Peak Brewing Company continue to brew on their original 5-barrel brew system for small batch and one-off styles. Although much of the small batch beer we brew is sold directly out of our tap room, we also send out some of these small batch beers to wholesalers so that retail outlets can put on something that is unique but available for a limited time only.
Some examples of the styles we brew are: lager series (helles, dunkel, schwarzbier, doppelbock), Imperial IPA, a session IPA, Stout, Imperial chocolate coconut porter, Belgian series, an Irish red ale, green chile ale, the ever popular Black Currant Gose and one of our newest – the Tony Milos Breakfast Beer, a vanilla espresso Scotch ale.
