TrimTab Brewing Company (Birmingham, Alabama) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Helix Rising, a double dry-hopped Hazy Double IPA, on Friday, February 22.
Arriving as the latest installment in the brewery’s Light Visions Collection of small batch New England-style IPAs and Double IPAs, Helix Rising is a Hazy Double IPA that starts with “a complex grain bill consisting of clean Pilsner, copious amounts of sticky oats and a touch of flaked wheat to really tie the body . . . together.” To nail down the style’s juicy character, TrimTab’s brewers fermented Helix Rising with “a fruity expressive yeast and then pushed [it] to the limit with extreme Double Dry hop additions of fresh Chinook, Zythos, Simcoe and Simcoe Lupulin Powder.” The complex recipe and hop schedule yield a deceivingly drinkable Helix Rising (8% ABV) “[overflowing] with flavors and aromas of freshly juiced pineapple, honeydew melon, fruit cocktail and apricot purée, followed with just the right amount of sticky resin bitterness.”
Helix Rising will debut in TrimTab Brewing’s Tasting Gallery on February 22 and is scheduled to enter distribution shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused retailers located within the brewery’s distribution footprint in Alabama and Georgia. Prost!
