Epic Beer Alien Invasion Double IPA x Deftones White Pony - Knife Prty


You are in for a treat. Deftones White Pony Album. Matched perfectly with Alien Invasion Double IPA by Epic.

White Pony, Recorded in California in 1999 it has all the sounds you would expect from the Deftones Powerhouse. It marked a significant growth in the band's sound and is considered a turning point in their history in terms of experimentation, employing an increasingly experimental rock sound and incorporating influences from post-hardcore, trip hop, shoegaze, progressive rock, and post-rock into the alternative metal sound they had become known for.

White Pony was also the first album to feature Frank Delgado as a full-time member of the band on turntables and synthesizer; Delgado had previously worked with the band as a featured guest on their first two albums, producing sound effects on some songs. It was also the first @deftones record which Chino Moreno began to contribute rhythm guitar parts.

The album was hugely popular; peaking at #2 in Australia, #3 in the U.S, #6 in France and #8 in Canada. The Album was certified Gold in Australia, Canada and the U.K. In the U.S; the album reached Platinum, selling over 1.3 million copies.

The beer! Alien Invasion is a Double IPA from brewers Epic. This invasion of your senses will definitely be alien to you. It uses the recently released, brand new US grown TALUS hop (previously known as HBC 692). This hop is described as pink grapefruit, citrus rinds, dried roses, pine resin, tropical fruits and sage. Epic have blended Talus with Pacfic Jade and Mosaic hops for extra fruit, extra dank and extra probe. Get it up ya!
