Concrete Beach Brewery Steps Up Their IPA Game by Packaging TangeRica and Más Hops

concretebeachlogoConcrete Beach Brewery (Miami, Florida) recently announced that TangeRica Wheat IPA and Más Hops Double IPA will soon be hitting shelves as their newest packaged offerings.

The first new IPA to find its way into Concrete Beach Brewery’s portfolio of packaged beers is TangeRica Wheat India Pale Ale. This variant of the brewery’s Year-Round Rica Wheat IPA ups the level of citrus refreshment by incorporating tangerine peel and juice into its recipe.  This full-bodied, 6.5% ABV Wheat IPA is a ” little drier and crisper, and bursting with . . . notes of citron blossom, grapefruit peel, orange, and lemongrass, while a wheat-heavy malt bill and subtle hop bitterness round out the experience.”  TangeRica Wheat IPA will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles beginning on March 6.  Once released, you can expect to find this one at grocery and liquor stores located in Concrete Beach’s distribution area of South Florida.

“It was very fun testing out recipes for TangeRica, as we were trying to find the perfect balance of acidity, bitterness and flavor from the fruit and hop profile,” said Marco Reyna, head brewer for Concrete Beach. “I think we hit the nail right on the head with this one, and I’m excited to introduce it to the South Florida market!”

Looking for an even bigger punch of hops?  Well, Concrete Beach also has you covered in that department with the limited release of Más Hops in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans.  First tapped as a Seasonal offering in 2015, this Double India Pale Ale was so popular with local hopheads that it has since earned itself a permanent tap handle in the brewery’s Social Hall.  This comes as no surprise when you consider that Más Hops lives up to its name by featuring copious amounts of Warrior, Chinook, Citra and Centennial hops.  Wonderfully balanced by a firm malty base, this offering proves to be a “hugely aromatic and flavorful IPA . . . [that] boasts a bouquet of pine and citrus that sets your palate up to appreciate the flavors of orange and grapefruit rind.” Packaged in 12 oz. cans, this limited release of Más Hops Double IPA will also see availability in South Florida beginning on March 6.

If you are down in South Florida and hoppy brews are on your mind, just make a mental note now that 6-packs of TangeRica Wheat IPA and Más Hops Double IPA are headed your way next week.  Prost!
