Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) has announced that Moon Rambler IPA will officially join its Seasonal lineup in early November 2020.
Originally introduced in Founders Brewing Co.’s taproom locations under the name Cow Jumped the Shark, Moon Rambler is a Milkshake-style India Pale Ale brewed with oats and wheat, hopped with Azacca, Mosaic and Cascade hops for “a blast of tropical fruitiness,” and dosed with milk sugar. Clocking in at 6.4% ABV, Moon Rambler IPA boasts “a sweet yet slight creaminess, giving it a round mouthfeel, remarkably less bitter taste and a fuller body than your typical IPA.”
“When it comes to beers, milk sugar has traditionally been used to sweeten up heavier offerings like stouts and porters,” said Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “With Moon Rambler IPA, we added some milk sugar to balance the bitterness and accentuate the fruity hop character. Brewed with oats, wheat and featuring Azacca, Cascade and Mosaic hops, Moon Rambler IPA is still a full-fledged IPA, just with a softer and sweeter side.”
Moon Rambler IPA is set to release in early November 2020 and is scheduled to hang around through March 2021. You can expect to find this new Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 15-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of Founders Brewing Co.’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
