On Friday, August 31, Proof Brewing Co. (Tallahassee, Florida) will pay tribute to its hometown college football team, the Florida State Seminoles, by releasing limited-edition cans of its award-winning Warpath Imperial IPA.
Originally brewed to commemorate the Florida State University football win over Auburn at the BCS National Championship in 2014, the annually-released Warpath is back to offer hop heads a modern take on the Imperial India Pale Ale that “emulates the juicy flavors of New England-Style hazy IPAs but with the dryness and mouthfeel of West Coast-Styles.” Thanks to a mix of Columbus, Mosaic, El Dorado and Citra hops that weighs in at “over five pounds of hops per barrel”, this IPA experience is led by “a tropical dank flavor, and citrusy aroma supported by a balanced malt backbone.” Charging in at a “crowd-pleasing” 9% ABV, Warpath Imperial IPA promises to “galvanize your taste buds and your thirst for victory.”
“Each year this beer sells out quickly on draft. We’re excited to release this beer for the first time in four pack cans,” said Sales & Events Director, Bryan Smith. “It’s a tailgating essential that every fan should have in their cooler. It is a Tallahassee tradition.”
Warpath Imperial IPA will officially release in Proof Brewing Co.’s tasting room on Friday, August 31 with availability in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans. Beer-loving FSU fans need to mark that date on their calendars because this tasting room-exclusive offering is expected to sell out quickly and will not see distribution. Prost!
