Due South Brewing Co. (Boynton Beach, Florida) has announced plans to expand their IPA portfolio later this month with the limited release of Grapefruit Category 5 IPA.
Arriving as the latest installment in a series of variants of Due South Brewing’s award-winning Category 5 IPA, Grapefruit Category 5 IPA benefits from the addition of “copious amounts of local Fort Pierce grapefruit peel” added during fermentation. This addition allows the base Imperial India Pale Ale’s big hop flavor to absorb an added punch of juicy, citrus goodness. At 8.5% ABV, Grapefruit Category 5 IPA possesses the size and refreshment level necessary to take on anything a Florida summer can throw at it.
“Grapefruit Category 5 IPA is an exciting addition to our lineup for summer,” said Doug Fairall, Brand Marketing Manager. “It’s part of our rotating production of the award-winning Category 5 IPA, which includes the Best Florida Beer 2017 Gold medal winning Oaked Category 5 IPA, previously available in March.”
Grapefruit Category 5 IPA will officially release in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft in the Taproom at Due South Brewing Co. on Friday, June 30. This incredibly limited release will also be available in 4-packs and on draft at select craft beer bars, restaurants and retailers located within Due South Brewing’s distribution area across South Florida and the Tampa Bay area. Prost!
