india pale ale

Elephant Rock is a massive sandstone formation imposing itself above the wilderness near Palmer Lake. It’s a wild, natural wonder and a rewarding sight for those who venture to find it.

Our American IPA has a bold, commanding spirit worthy of the local landmark. Over two pounds per barrel of late-addition hops give Elephant Rock its resinous pine and bright citrus profile. It’s monumental flavor worth discovering.

Red Ale

On a clear day, the view from the lookout tower atop Devils Head extends for hundreds of miles. It’s from this highest peak in the Rampart Range that they’ve been spotting forest fires for nearly a century.

This red ale is dedicated to those vigilant rangers keeping folks out of danger. It sports a fiery hue with a sweet toffee aroma and a palate full of caramel, cedar and toasty malt. Good eyes! You’ve spotted a great sip.

Belgian Ale

In 1859, they were shouting Pikes Peak or Bust! During one of America’s greatest gold rushes, thousands of prospectors used the mountain as a beacon, guiding them across the Great Plains to their fortunes.

Our Gold Rush is a full-flavored Belgian-inspired ale with notes of honey, clove and baking spice. Dig in and enjoy it, you’ve hit the mother lode.

Zebulon Pike, caught ill equipped for the harsh conditions, never made it to the top of the mountain later named for him. Now, the summit house atop the peak provides explorers a warm respite from the elements year-round.

You’ll find the same comfort in our traditional oatmeal stout. It’s a lush, creamy brew with a substantial head. Characteristic roast and nutty malt flavors finish with some lingering spice. It’s sure to fortify you no matter what the weather outside.

Pale Ale

The annual marathon up Pikes Peak is one of the country’s most difficult. It demands a runner’s full measure of determination and many are unable to finish.

We’ve made this classic pale ale much more easy-going. It balances just enough citrus and bitterness against light body of smooth, golden malt. With a finish as clean as the air at 14,000 feet, it’s a refreshing reward for a tough climb. Relax on this Ascent, you’ve earned it.

Seasonal IPA

Named for the 38 keystones that adorn the arched windows of the 1903 El Paso County courthouse, now home to the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum(CSPM). At first glance each of these American Indian sculptures appear to be the same, but at closer inspection they each have their own unique personality and character.

Each Cotopaxi lava rock face is adorned with ornamentation ranging from ample leaves to rose buds to stylized fruit.
Sharing a common heritage but expressing an individual personality, each sculpture expresses its individual personality. Every edition of this IPA is similarly unique. Each edition will be crafted using a common malt backbone while highlighting a new and different flavor through the varied use of hops, ingredients, yeast or processes - bringing a unique face to the traditional IPA.
