Wild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Alpha Abstraction Double IPA – Vol. 10 in mid-December 2019.
Declared by the Wild Leap team to be the best of the brewery’s wildly popular Alpha Abstraction Double IPA Series so far, Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 10 is a Hazy/Juicy Double India Pale Ale featuring Strata and Cashmere hops that were “carefully selected right down to the specific lot for qualities the brewers sought.” The Strata hops offers the beer “a passion fruit flavor” while Cashmere lends “a citrus flavor that was described by the grower as a ‘Sunny D aroma.'” Coming in at 8% ABV and 46 IBUs, Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 10 promises to be a “perfect blend of citrus notes . . . and different tropical fruit notes that weren’t found in previous volumes.”
“Because it’s the tenth in the series, we wanted to make it special,” explains Chris Elliott, Wild Leap’s Chief Brewing Officer. “We definitely saved some hop ideas that we’ve had for a while.”
“Everyone at the brewery considers this to be their favorite of the series,” Elliott says. “It has a little bit of everything… it’s a little bit sweet, it’s slightly tart, and not too bitter. It’s a nicely balanced beer.”
Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 10 is set release during the week of December 16 and will hang around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located throughout Wild Leap’s distribution footprint in Georgia. Prost!
