Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will begin the limited release of its 23 Anniversary Ale – Triple IPA in early December.
Dropping as the first Heavy Seas offering to be packaged in a 4-pack of 16 oz. cans with PSLs (pressure sensitive labels), 23 Anniversary Ale is a Triple India Pale Ale featuring an “enormous amount of Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic, and Cascade hops.” With these hops employed in the boil, the hopback and in a triple dry-hop, this juicy Triple IPA is guaranteed to “absolutely destroy your palate with hop flavor.”
“A beast of a beer, the subtle hop aromas belie its depth and power,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “Over tones of berry and melon blend with some tropical fruit and white grape notes to intrigue without overpowering. A hint of cracker, candi sugar and toffee lead into brown sugar, pine and more tropical fruit flavors. A warming, semi-dry finish with lingering berry and citrus flavors, completes the 23 experience.”
23 Anniversary Ale – Triple IPA is scheduled to debut in the brewery’s Tap Room on December 7 when Heavy Seas hosts its 23rd Anniversary Party and will also enter distribution at or around that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in the following states: Maryland, Florida, Washington, DC, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Ohio, and North Carolina. Prost!
