Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that Cosmic Crown will join the brewery’s 2022 Seasonal lineup in early April.
An old-school style meets new-school hops, Cosmic Crown is a Belgian-style Strong Golden Ale that features “Galaxy hops to impart passionfruit and peach qualities to its profile of ripe fruit and light peppery spice.” Coming in at 9% ABV, Cosmic Crown offers “assertive aromas of pineapple, bubblegum, dried flowers, and a hint of black pepper” alongside notes of “overripe banana, red apple, and lime leaf esters . . ., while poundcake-like malt, pepper-like spiciness, and herbaceous bitterness play supporting roles.”
Cosmic Crown is rolling out now and is scheduled to hang around for the next few months. You can expect to find this new Seasonal available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida and throughout the rest of Cigar City’s distribution footprint in the Southeast. Prost!
