Smuttynose Brewing Company (Hampton, New Hampshire) recently announced the release of Summer IPA as the brewery’s newest summer Seasonal offering.
To create a sessionable remedy for ridiculously hot weather and poolside thirst, the brewers at Smuttynose developed Summer IPA with a recipe punctuated by citrus and tropical fruit notes sources from the use of Zeus, Citra, Saphir, and Amarillo hops. With that hop profile gliding across a “subtle malt sweetness,” this easy-drinking India Pale Ale (5% ABV) comes together with a flavor and aroma that “is both complex and hoppy while perfectly balanced.”
“We wanted to make an IPA that’s perfect for a summer day, and we think we nailed it,” said Peter Egelston, Founder and President of Smuttynose Brewing Company. “It’s got all the hoppiness and bite of a classic IPA, and it’s perfect for any summer activity.”
Summer IPA is rolling out now and will be available throughout the summer months. Look for this Seasonal offering to be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, New Hampshire and within the rest of Smuttynose’s distribution area. Be sure to keep Summer IPA in mind the next time you find yourself in search of a tall pour of hoppy refreshment. Prost!
