In 1991, Drake’s put its first IPA into the tanks for the ever-growing number of craft beer fans yearning for hops. Originally more of an English-American hybrid IPA, over time Drake’s brewers kept the high quality specialty malts, but moved toward a more West Coast-style approach. They ultimately created the balanced, dry IPA, brimming with piney and citrus aromas from classic Yakima Valley “C” hops (think Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus) that continue to win over hop fans with every pint.
