Wild Heaven Beer (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that Sunburst IPA will join the brewery’s Year-Round portfolio in late March 2022.
Here to revamp Wild Heaven’s Flagship lineup and replace both Wise Blood and Altair, Sunburst IPA is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale that “features a delightful blend of Talus, Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic, Amarillo, Cascade, and Chinook hops – adding something special from each varietal.” Coming in at 6.5% ABV, Sunburst IPA has “a touch of bitterness [that blends] with the notes that come from the best of modern hops for a clean, crisp finish.”
“My vision was to create the ultimate IPA that honors the best of two branches, West Coast and Hazy, while avoiding the tendencies many have to drift into overly extreme expressions of flavor,” says Wild Heaven’s co-founder and creative force, Eric Johnson. “Instead, by capturing what we love about those styles, we found our path.”
Head Brewer Josh Franks says, “The first sip of the final version of Sunburst IPA off the tank proved that the effort and time spent on this project were completely worth it because we had captured magic in a glass.”
Sunburst IPA is rolling out now with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this new Year-Round at craft beer-focused establishments located within Wild Heaven’s distribution footprint in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina. Prost!
