Brewer's Notes

This IPA is an IPA for hop heads. Each hop is loaded with essential oils redolent of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Built upon a luxurious malt foundation and dry-hopped with Mosaic, Azacca and Simcoe, Megathrust bursts with flavors of mango, pineapple, papaya, and tangerine. This incredibly well-balanced IPA with a slick oily mouthfeel and the warmth of 7.5% ABV create an experience that demands a return trip. Enjoy!

Behind The Name

The Megathrust earthquake is the largest of all forms terrestrial tectonic activity. These occur when two crustal plates collide creating immense seismic activity. The Ring-of-fire beneath the Pacific Ocean is the preeminent source for this class of earthquake. Brewed with nearly 200 pounds per brew of Mosaic, Azacca and Simcoe hops, this IPA is a tropical hop monster truly befitting the name Megathrust. And like its namesake, Megathrust IPA will leave a lasting impression on the craft beer landscape. You’ve been warned…
