ENKI Brewing is the 20+ year culmination of the friendship between two beer lovers, John Hayes and Dan Norton. ENKI’s mission is to “Make the World a Friendlier Place – Two Beers at a Time” just as John and Dan have been enjoying and sharing beers with old and new friends, alike.

ENKI® Tail Feather IPA, has officially landed. This beer pours a brilliant goldenrod color and carries a long lasting, silky head. A hefty blend of classic Pacific Northwest hops gives this beer the iconic bitterness IPA drinkers have come to expect. A juicy burst of pummelo and fresh cut flowers excite the palate, thanks to dry hopping process. Deliberately unbalanced to delight hop-craving aficionados we use just enough malt to give a full body and smooth mouth feel. The bitter finish lingers on long after drinking.
8% ABV and 90 IBUs
