Flying Dog Brewery (Frederick, Maryland) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Kulture King Imperial Hazy in mid-April 2021.
Developed to add another hoppy punch to Flying Dog’s lineup of Heavy Hitters, Kulture King is an Imperial Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale that is “hop forward and bursting with intense fruit flavors and aromas” sourced from Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops. Coming in at 10% ABV, Kulture King allows “citrus and tropical fruit notes [to] dominate the nose while the beer’s low bitterness and soft finish makes its [higher] ABV nearly unnoticeable in the flavor and mouthfeel.”
“Over 95% of the hops in Kulture King are added after the boil,” said Flying Dog’s Brewmaster, Ben Clark. “Moving the hopping to the whirlpool greatly limits the bitterness and greatly increases the aroma and flavor, creating the perfectly hazy IPA profile.”
Kulture King is set to debut in mid-April and will stick around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this new Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 24-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and throughout the rest of Flying Dog’s distribution area. Prost!
