Harpoon Brewery (Boston, Massachusetts) has officially released Hoppy Adventure Double IPA has a new year-round offering available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans.
First brewed in the fall of 2014 on Harpoon Brewery’s 10-barrel pilot system as an experimental, small-batch offering, Hoppy Adventure Double IPA “quickly became one of the most sought after beers on tap at the brewery.” After the beer maintained its popularity with hop heads when it was released again last year as a draft-only release with limited distribution, the decision makers at the brewery have now officially added Hoppy Adventure to their portfolio of year-round offerings.
Hoppy Adventure is a Double India Pale Ale absolutely loaded with citrus and tropical fruit notes. The slightly hazy, golden-colored brew has a pronounced juicy hop character that has been meticulously balanced with a subtly sweet malt backbone. The finished beer weighs in at 7.8% ABV and 58 IBUs.
4-packs of 16 oz. cans of Hoppy Adventure Double IPA are officially available now. This beer is also available on draft with limited availability. Look for this offering to be available at craft beer establishments in Alabama, Florida and throughout Harpoon Brewery’s expansive distribution area. Be sure to make a mental note about this one, and pick up a 4-pack of Hoppy Adventure on your next beer run to get your hop fix. Prost!
