Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that will begin the taproom exclusive can release of En Route Brut IPA on Friday, June 21.
Surfacing as the fourth Limited Release offering to come out of Heavy Seas’ 15 Barrel Brewhouse, En Route Brut is a Brut-style India Pale Ale brewed with yuzu juice and dry hopped with “heavy . . . doses of Citra and Mosaic.” Clocking in at a refreshing 6% ABV, the “incredibly dry” En Route Brut is guaranteed to “set the gearshift for the high gear of your soul.”
“Our newest creation, En Route Brut IPA, is an incredibly dry, quenching, hoppy brew with virtually no residual sugar,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “Wonderfully aromatic, heavy dry hop doses of Citra and Mosaic hops also provide a soft, subdued bitterness. The addition of first pressed yuzu juice exacerbates the magnificent citrus bouquet, redolent of pink grapefruit and exotic fruits. A fine carbonation and fluffy white head add to this champagne-esque experience.”
En Route Brut will officially release in the Heavy Seas Taproom on Friday, June 21, 2019. This taproom exclusive offering will be available for purchase in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. En Route Brut will not see distribution. Prost!
