West Coast Double IPA / 8.8% ABV, 81 IBU, 4 SRM
*Note - if you purchased a Geko Fingers without a date printed on the label. The "born on" date is 4/3.
Inspired by the constant evolution of the West Coast IPA style, Gecko Fingers uses a surprisingly simple grain bill and clean fermenting yeast that provides just enough backbone to support the hops, without getting in the way. All the modern tricks were used to layer huge amounts of hop character all over this beer, with heavy handed additions of El Dorado and CTZ throughout the process. We believe IPA’s should be flavorful, refreshing, and approachable and this beer is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates. Notes of sweet tropical fruit, fresh flowers, and a touch of resinous pine round out the perfect blend of malt and bitterness for the style.
Classic American hops dominate this beer with the sticky resiny undertones that inspired the thought of the sticky fingers of geckos. Sadie Burzan is the local artist incorporating the hop and gecko stickiness to the can art, and indeed you will have a hard time putting this beer down
