About Pike Double IPA
Because Washington State is America's hop capital, breweries in the Pacific NW revived the IPA style in the 1980s. The trend spread nationally, and ultimately influenced beers in England and Belgium. That 'more is better' ultimately led U.S. brewers to double hop these beers, and the double IPA was born. To commemorate the first Seattle Beer Week in 2009, Pike was chosen to brew a commemorative ale, the Double IPA.
