DESTIHL Brewery (Normal, Illinois) has officially introduced Amra Mango IPA as the brewery’s newest packaged Seasonal offering.
Previously brewed as a draft-only release, Amra Mango IPA is now headed to 12 oz. cans as DESTIHL Brewery’s first seasonal of 2017 that is not in their WiLD Sour Series. “Amra”, Sanskrit for mango, begins with an American India Pale Ale recipe supported by a solid malt backbone and a hop bill bursting with tropical fruit characteristics. Real mangoes are then added to “dampen the impact of the bittering hops” and deliver a 7% ABV IPA that is a full-on tropical experience.
“Hops and mangoes are two pieces of a puzzle that we brought together to form an unbelievable IPA,” said Founder, CEO and Brewmaster, Matt Potts. “The hop characteristics are already chock full of tropical fruit, so accompanying it with juicy mangoes was a very natural pairing. We’re really excited about Amra because whether you’re a hop-head or hop-shy, you’ll find what you’re looking for. We have been brewing this beer for years on draft, so it is great to finally package Amra.”
Amra Mango IPA acts as “a seasonal accompaniment” to DESTIHL’s Year-Round portfolio that includes beers such as Abbey’s Single, Weissenheimer Hefeweizen and Vertex IPA. Once it’s Seasonal run is completed, Amra will be “followed by another 4 month seasonal to be announced.”
Amra Mango IPA will have availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft from May to August. You can expect to find this Seasonal offering available at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Florida, Illinois and throughout the rest of DESTIHL Brewery’s distribution area. Prost!
