Pouring a clear deep gold color with a thick bright white head, this “San Diego style” IPA delivers aromas of pine, mandarin orange, and tangerine, as the bright, floral, and expressive hops open up in the glass. Following this are citrus leaf and tropical notes that add a further depth which are supported by toasty barley, Vienna, and caramel malt. Rich and inviting, the first sip calls up mandarin orange peel, citrus blossom and leaves, grapefruit, and tropical pineapple with a smooth and creamy mousse. Mid-palate is where the malt shines and gives a sturdy backbone, but the fruity and juicy hops are the star here. Firm medium bitterness with a touch of spice makes this aromatic and dank IPA well balanced and full-flavored from start to finish, yet won’t leave your palate overwhelmed after a few glasses. The name Idahome is fitting as well since the beer’s made up of barley from Idaho Falls, hops from Wilder and Parma, and “free-range” Big Wood water, which give this IPA its distinct sense of place. Pair with grilled Idaho Ruby Trout and roasted vegetables or crispy rosemary potatoes.
Founded by friends Paul Holle and Kevin Jones, Sawtooth Brewery opened for business on 11/11/11 in the Clarion Hotel in Ketchum, Idaho. Paul and Kevin realized the local scene was lacking in craft beer culture, so the duo envisioned Sawtooth as a manifestation of their passion for creating beer to meet the needs of Sun Valley and the surrounding areas. Sawtooth is dedicated to brewing locally inspired premium beers that reflect the beauty of the recreational and wilderness areas of Sun Valley, Idaho. Paul brought his extensive home brewing experience and expertise while Kevin added his business acumen to make Sawtooth Brewery the leader in craft beer culture that it is today.
They put their passion to work opening the Public House in Ketchum and the Hailey Brewery and Taproom, where they also moved their brewing operations after they quickly outgrew their original spot in Ketchum. Additionally, Sawtooth offers catering services, and they also run the Outpost Food Truck and an eight-tap draft trailer. Their success has led them to produce over 1,000 barrels of delicious craft beer per year and expand their distribution throughout Idaho.
In 2015 Sawtooth Brewery became the first Sun Valley brewery to can their beers, which protects the beer from damaging light, and also makes the beer lighter for transport and requires less additional packaging. In addition to their lineup of year-round, seasonal, and limited-release beers, Sawtooth also now produces the Atmos brand of non-alcoholic beers, as well as the Creekside line of hard seltzers. We are pleased to introduce Sawtooth Brewery to our club members and hope you enjoy these beers as much as we did. For more info, visit them at www.sawtoothbrewery.com.
