TrimTab Brewing (Birmingham, Alabama) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Light Visions: Southern Sphere, a Southern Hemisphere Double Dry-Hopped Hazy Double IPA, at noon on Friday, April 26.
Arriving as the newest installment in TrimTab’s Light Visions Collection of small-batch hazy and New England IPAs, Southern Sphere is a New England-style India Pale Ale that is supported by “a grain bill [of] clean Pilsner malt, as many fluffy flaked oats as possible and just a touch of lactose to produce the ideal mouthfeel for this style.” The beer was then hit with a “fruit-forward yeast strain” and double dry-hopped with 100% New Zealand hops – Wakatu, Pacifica and Nelson Sauvin. Coming in at 7.5% ABV, Southern Sphere promises to supply its drinker with a “REAL smooth” experience filled with “overwhelming flavor notes and aromas of citrusy tangerine pulp, apricot marmalade, HUGE sauvignon blanc grape vibes and kiwi like resin, all rounded out with lower bitterness and a creamy mouthfeel.”
Light Visions: Southern Sphere will officially debut in the Tasting Gallery at TrimTab Brewing at noon on Friday, April 26. This Limited Release offering will have availability in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. It is not yet known if this offering will see distribution. Prost!
