Astro Biz: Starburst IPA

Starburst IPAMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one periodically on Seattle Astronomy.

Today’s Astro Biz is Starburst IPA from Ecliptic Brewing. Ecliptic is based in Portland, Oregon and (spoiler alert!) probably deserves an Astro Biz post all its own. Its website at present features nine brews, all with space and astronomy names. Ecliptic also has a brewpub in the Boise neighborhood east of the river in Portland.

The Starburst, according to the website, produces a soaring amount of hop flavor. Brewed with Amarillo, Azacca, Centennial, Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops for fresh flavors of citrus, fruit and pine. It uses 100 percent pale malt that makes for a super clean finish and puts the focus on the hop flavors and aromas. Dry hopped to the end of the universe!

Worth a try!
