Reformation Brewery (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that the latest version of its rotating Nolan the Wanderer IPA series, Nolan #005, will begin hitting shelves and taps in mid-June 2019.
Built for ultimate summertime refreshment, Nolan the Wanderer #005 is a “Juicy Fruit” India Pale Ale “highlighting firm but balanced hop bitterness and ripe fruit character of orange, mango, and hints of papaya.” Brewed without the use of any fruit, all the fruity goodness packed into this American IPA was sourced from late hop additions of Columbus, Tomahawk, Zeus, and Eureka hops. This iteration of Nolan the Wanderer IPA comes in at 7.2% ABV.
CEO & Co-founder Spencer Nix said their newly opened R&D brewhouse in downtown Woodstock was instrumental in bringing this version to market. “We saw this recipe have a viral taproom moment I’ll never forget.” Nix continued, “As in our lives, this beer is all about timing. The later you add those typically bitter components, the more aromatic, fruity, floral hops, and potentially pleasing they can become. We’re proud to say this recipe is truly community made, and we can’t wait to share it with a wider audience.”
Nolan the Wanderer #005 will officially release in mid-June and is scheduled to stick around for two to three months. You can expect to find this Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located within Reformation’s distribution footprint in Georgia and Tennessee. Prost!
