Alternate takes #1 by Dogfish Head

In the analog age of music, artists recorded take after take, experimenting with new sounds until a great record emerged. Our Alternate Takes series offers a peek into our iterative creative R&D process, where each batch is celebrated as its own off-centered hit.

For Alternate Takes #1 we’ve brewed a Double IPA with Centennial, Warrior, and Idaho 7 hops. With a deep golden hue, you’re greeted with notes of tropical fruits in the aroma – pineapple, papaya, and passion fruit – and a malty, apricot sweetness with each sip. Finishing almost tea-like. Citrusy and fruity, this is one quenching IPA.
