Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing and Boneyard Beer of Bend, Oregon are collaborating on a mashup IPA to release next week. The beer, named STARPM IPA, will ship February 22nd in 16-ounce cans and draft and will be the second beer in Ecliptic’s 2023 Cosmic Collaboration series.

STARPM IPA is a mashup recipe of Ecliptic’s Starburst IPA and Boneyard’s RPM IPA – both companies’ flagship beers. Both of the original beers are heavily hopped, and the mashup is no exception, featuring Citra, Simcoe, Centennial, Azacca and Amarillo hops for a citrusy and tropical flavor. The beer features a classic malt profile and clocks in at a solid 7.2% ABV.                       

Says Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris, “I used to work with Tony Lawrence [Boneyard’s founder] back at Deschutes- in fact, I hired him! It has been fun being able to work together again to blend our recipes into a new creation and decide on a name, which is also a mashup. I am pleased with how it’s turning out.”

STARPM IPA will be released in 16-ounce cans and draft throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network on February 22nd. Visit Ecliptic’s website for up-to-date details on this release and potential release events (tentatively planned for early March).

Ecliptic + Boneyard STARPM IPA

Our John Harris and Boneyard’s Founder and Brewmaster Tony Lawrence have a friendship that goes back many years – starting when John brought Tony into the beer universe hiring him as a brewer at Deschutes Brewery. This beer honors John and Tony’s long-lasting student/teacher friendship. For this latest reunion they chose to combine the incredible hop prowess of their beloved Starburst and RPM IPAs. The result? A unified force of citrusy and tropical hop aromas from Citra, Simcoe, Centennial, Azacca and Amarillo Hops–all against a classic malt profile with a dry finish.
