Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Knuckle Buster Cold IPA, a special collaboration project with Revival Cycles (Austin, Texas), in January 2022.
A collaboration “rooted in design, [incorporating] both brands’ passions for craftmanship and hard work,” Knuckle Buster is a Cold India Pale Ale that is “best described as a cross between a pilsner and an IPA.” Coming in at 6.1% ABV and 60 IBUs, Knuckle Buster “opens with a delightful floral hop aroma that is followed by more hops, cracker, bread, and a soft sweetness across a very light body.”
“At Rogue, we are always working on new ideas that break from the norm; this collaboration is no different,” says Dharma Tamm, Rogue President. “Our friends at Revival Cycles in Austin, Texas also like to push the envelope with their hand-built motorcycles, so teaming up on a new style of IPA that uses a cold fermentation technique just made sense.”
“At Revival Cycles, we understand that collaborating with like-minded design focused people is how we all grow, learn, stay fresh, and innovate. This fun project with Rogue allows us to expand our footprint and drink more of their delicious IPAs,” adds Alan Stulberg, Founder, Revival Cycles.
Knuckle Buster is scheduled to debut in January and will hang around through April 2022. 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 Oregon, Texas and throughout the rest of Rogue’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
