No-Li Brewhouse, known for its big, malt-forward, hoppy ales, featured a new Imperial IPA, Comrade, at its No Boundaries on the River Small Batch Beer Fest (#NBOR14) on April 26 at the brewery in Spokane.
“Our No Boundaries Series is the inspiration behind this festival. The program allows our brewers to get creative each month, and our customers to keep satisfying their pallets with new flavors,” said co-owner John Bryant.
Back in January, No-Li launched its “No Boundaries Small Batch Series,” featuring a new beer every four to six weeks. The brewery’s newest No Boundaries Small Batch Series, Comrade Imperial IPA, comes in at 9.5 percent ABV, 105 IBUs, and is brewed with two of the brewery’s favorite hops at the moment: El Dorado and Amarillo. The hops deliver flavors and aromas of watermelon, cherries, grapefruit and lemons. Dry-hopping at the end lends a bright and fresh hop aroma, making this the perfect No Boundaries beer to kick off summer.
In addition to Comrade, No-Li featureed two of its other “No Boundaries” series beers at the festival, its Smoke-Kan Rye, a lightly smokey rye beer, and Brewer’s Breakfast, a coffee oatmeal milk stout brewed with local donut shop, Dawn of the Donut, donut mix.
