The fourth in Bale Breaker's year-round lineup, Leota Mae was brewed as a heavily dry-hopped West Coast IPA with almost zero malt flavor. Aromas of tropical fruit, herbs (chives, thyme, lemon balm), grass, and pine with intense and lingering bitterness.
Our great-grandparents planted hops in the Yakima Valley in 1932. The matriarch of our family, Leota Mae, worked sunrise to sunset cultivating the land we still farm today. This beer pays tribute to our family’s legacy and the woman who started it all. Cheers, Leota Mae, here's your IPA.
**Please Note: All Bale Breaker beer is heavily hopped and unfiltered, so some sediment may be present.
