SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has announced that 420 Strain G13 IPA, a cannabis-inspired brew dosed with terpenes and hemp-type flavor, has officially released as the brewery’s newest Year-Round offering.
Specifically brewed to offer “an olfactory experience that mimics . . . the legendary G13 cannabis strain”, 420 Strain G13 IPA is an “aromatic super-hybrid sticky” India Pale Ale that begins with a solid base of malts and “some of [SweetWater’s] dankest hops, Columbus and Simcoe, plus two dry hop additions.” To complement the hops and further reinforce those dank aromatics, the brewers “found the perfect botanically-sourced, strain specific terpenes and married them with propriety natural hemp flavor.” This incredibly heady recipe yields a “phenomenally delicious and drinkable” 420 Strain G13 IPA that boasts “a great body, good head and nice amount of haze at a pleasurable 6% ABV.”
420 Strain G13 IPA is steadily rolling out now as a draft-only offering. This new Year-Round brew is available now at select bars and restaurants located in Georgia and will experience expanded availability throughout SweetWater’s distribution footprint as time goes on (click here to see release schedule). 420 Strain G13 IPA is scheduled to hit shelves in 12 oz. bottles in September 2018. Prost!
