Available Year-Round. A new style of craft experimentation is born with the second-generation of Armory XPA– a refreshing pale that carries on its predecessor’s mission to discover the next great hop, replacing Citra with the tropical Hop #07270. While most Deschutes beers endure rigorous testing at the hands of our pub patrons before receiving six-pack approval, with Armory XPA we want you to share in the process with us.
