Ballast Point Brewing Co. (San Diego, California) has officially announced that Brut IPA, a new Limited Release offering, is hitting beer shelves now.
Arriving as the latest addition to the brewery’s adventurous Explorer Series that features “bold, exotic flavors and styles”, Brut IPA is Ballast Point’s take on the “emerging trend within the India Pale Ale category named after the dry Champagne style.” Light in body and bitterness, Brut IPA “explodes with citrusy hops and notes of grapefruit, lime and tropical fruits thanks to Citra hops added late in the brewing process.” This “very dry and refreshing” Brut IPA comes in at 7% ABV.
Brut IPA is rolling out now and will be available for a limited time. You can expect to find this new offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Illinois, Virginia and throughout the rest of Ballast Point’s nationwide distribution area. Prost!

Fun Fact – “Known for their light body and dry finish, Brut IPAs have been described as the opposite of juicy, hazy IPAs.
