We are excited to share a beer we brewed up with the homies at New Realm. It’s a traditional West Coast IPA called “I Remember My First IPA”. Geoff Belcher, Head Brewer of New Realm SC will be in the house!
I Remember My First IPA will be 7% ABV and was brewed with Citra, Centennial & El Dorado Hops. Expect big Pine & Grapefruit flavors!

There has been a haze craze the last few years – and we enjoy a New England IPA as much as the next person – but there’s something beautiful about a classic West Coast IPA. West Coast IPAs are traditionally known for their bold hop aroma, high bitterness, and citrus/piney aroma and flavors. They are brewed with higher amounts of hops in the boil kettle, which leads to the high bitterness and mid-palate hop flavor in the style. Watch the below video to learn more about the style:
We are stoked for y’all to try this collaboration. We’ll be tapping it at noon but the party starts at 4pm! To see what else is going on at The Whale CHS, out our event page.
