Selkirk Abbey Infidel

Top 10 Spring Beers

Located at the southern edge of the Selkirk Mountains in Northern Idaho near Coeur d'Alene, this brewery is the first in the area to produce Belgian-style ales. With a motto of, "It's not for the masses. It's for you," this creation adds Belgian yeast to the popular IPA style, making it a hybrid of American and Belgian brews. It pours an orange hue with an off-white head and delivers a piney, citrusy aroma. The flavor is similar to that of a hoppy American IPA, but in the background there's also a dry spiciness that's derived from the Belgian yeast strain it's brewed with. As the beer warms, more of the maltiness and Belgian-style spice notes come through, with the hops continuing to hang around on the back of your palate.
