Drake’s IPA is Drake’s Brewing Company’s flagship beer. This ale is a West Coast interpretation of a traditional India Pale Ale. Crystal and Honey malts give this beer its copper color and Cascade, Chinook and Falconer’s Flight hops are what give it the IPA punch.

This India Pale Ale pours with a fluffy white head. The floral and pine smell of the hops is balanced out with the caramel fragrance of the malt for a pleasant and inviting aroma. The light caramel malt taste leads into that IPA kick, with a pine hops bitterness. A firm medium body with good carbonation make this a perfect choice to enjoy while cooling off on a warm summer’s day or just to sip on all year long.
Founded in 1989 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Drake’s Brewing Company is one of the nation’s earliest urban craft breweries of the modern era. Drake’s brewery is somewhat antiquated, by 21st Century craft-brewing standards. It was born in the original era of the American micro-brewing movement, and unlike modern production breweries, there aren’t any computers controlling the mash, the boil, or the general brewing process.
