Black IPA

Once you go black IPA you don’t go back IPA

Falls City’s Black IPA is dark in color, with a prominent “Northwest” hoppy aroma – citrusy, piney and resinous – with sweet malt, hints of roastiness and toasted malt. The flavors strike a beautiful balance between citrusy Northwest hops and, to a lesser degree, roasted, chocolate malt or caramel notes. Despite its rich color, the body is more reminiscent of an India Pale Ale, not heavy like a porter or stout.

Solidarity among beers

Unlike most porters, the Falls city Baltic Porter is made with a lager yeast and is brewed with a smoky malt. It’s dark brown in color and is reminiscent of dried fruit.

The Falls City Gose is a slightly sour, slightly salty beer. Brewed for over 1000 years, this beer has hints of coriander, citrus, and is refreshing to drink.

White IPA

Whiter than your winter tan

While lighter, fruiter, and more refreshing than most IPAs, our White IPA it still retains the full flavor and depth you love.

For an extra twist, we’ve added coriander and orange peel… just in time for summer.
