Wild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of GR8FRUT, a grapefruit-inspired Double IPA, in late July 2021.
Here to fill your summer with some citrus goodness, GR8FRUT is a Double India Pale Ale that sources all its grapefruit flavor from “grapefruit-forward hop varieties such as Talus, Simcoe, and Apollo.” Coming in at 8.2% ABV, GR8FRUT “boasts flavor notes of tropical citrus and grapefruit” with absolutely no fruit juice added.
“For GR8FRUT, we took our favorite Grapefruit-forward hops and combined them to create a double IPA that tastes just like Pink Grapefruit juice,” explains Chief Brewing Officer, Chris Elliott. “We have discovered that these hops have different elements of grapefruit flavors: some have notes of grapefruit rind and pith, while other hops like Talus have strong pink grapefruit juice flavors. The combination tastes just like the real fruit!”
GR8FRUT is actively rolling out now 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 in Georgia and other select markets throughout the Southeast. Prost!
