Wild Leap Brew Co. Releases Alpha Abstraction Double IPA – Vol. 5

wildleaplogoWild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will release the fifth installment in its incredibly popular Alpha Abstraction Double IPA series during the last week of January 2019.

Arriving as the latest release in Wild Leap’s “artistic and experimental” series of Double India Pale Ales, Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 5 is the first of the series – and first Wild Leap beer ever – to be brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops.  Directly sourced out of New Zealand, these gorgeous hops “give the beer a subtle bitterness with a fresh fruit aroma that can resemble white wine, fresh gooseberry, and tropical flavors.”  Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 5 clocks in at 8% ABV.

As far as the artwork goes, the “ever-changing buffalo” design on the can for this Alpha Abstraction release features a photograph of the street art displayed in the Krog Street Tunnel in the Old Fourth Ward of Atlanta.  Since both of Wild Leap’s founders began their careers in Atlanta, this design acts as their nod to “the creative, ever changing” nature that the city shares with the Alpha Abstraction series.

“First and foremost, we want to always make great beer,” shares Chris Elliott, Head Brewer at Wild Leap Brew Co. “But beer is supposed to be fun, fresh, something that is ever changing. That is what the Alpha series has been for us – a way to mix things up, and try new hops.”

Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 5 will officially launch during the last week of January and will hang around 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-friendly establishments located within Wild Leap’s distribution area in Georgia. Prost!

Wild Leap Brew Co. Closes Out 2018 with Three Limited Releases

WildLeapAmericanBlackberryWild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that will introduce three new Limited Releases this holiday season: American Blackberry Ale, Alpha Abstraction Double IPA – Volume 4, and Solid Ground Cold Brew Coffee Stout.

Released in late November to kick off Wild Leap’s end-of-the-year barrage, American Blackberry is a Fruit Beer/Blackberry Ale “designed to taste like a piece of homemade blackberry pie.”  The brewery pulled this off by fermenting the beer with “1,400 pounds of blackberries” to create “a distinct freshness paired with rich cinnamon.” (ABV – 6.5%, IBUs – 20)

“The crisp weather and holiday spirit that surrounds this season influenced us to brew a beer that has a familiar and cozy feel,” explains Rob Goldstein, co-founder of Wild Leap. “It reminds you of the flavors of home, while helping you survive it.”

Next up, we have the latest release in Wild Leap’s wildly-popular Alpha Abstraction Series of juicy, double dry-hopped India Pale Ales.  Alpha Abstraction- Vol. 4 is the first of the series to feature Denali hops and comes in at 8% ABV and 35 IBUs.

“For the Alpha series, we search for hop varieties that are fruity and juicy,” explains Head Brewer, Chris Elliott. “Denali has citrus, pineapple, and pine characteristics that work well with this beer, and the hop is high in essential oils so you can expect a bigger and bolder aroma compared to other hop varieties.”

The final Wild Leap release of 2018 will be Solid Ground, a Cold Brew Coffee Stout “fermented with fresh Colombian coffee brewed right in the Wild Leap brewhouse, and roasted malts.”  Weighing in at a big and toasty 8.8% ABV, Solid Ground is “smooth and balanced and is an ideal refreshment beside a big roaring fire on a cold winter day.”

American Blackberry is available now and Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 4 and Solid Ground will both debut on December 7 at a Double Release Party hosted by Wild Leap Brew Co.  All three offerings will be available as long as supplies last in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in and around the Atlanta, LaGrange, Newnan, Peachtree City, Columbus, Athens, Gainesville and Augusta areas of Georgia. Prost!

Wild Leap Brew Co. Hits October with Two Limited Release Beers

WildLeapLogo.pngWild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that Rollin’ Deep Cinnamon Roll Stout and the third volume in its incredibly popular Alpha Abstraction Double IPA series will both debut during the second week of October 2018.

Arriving as Wild Leap’s first canned stout, Rollin’ Deep is a cinnamon roll-inspired treat “brewed with rich caramel and chocolate malts and cinnamon.” Clocking in at a warming 8.5% ABV, Rollin’ Deep boasts a “straight-from-the-food-court, sticky bun flavor” that will pair beautifully with the “cooler autumn days” ahead.

“With fall approaching, we wanted a beer that was perfect for football games and bonfires,” said co-founder and CEO Anthony Rodriguez. “We’ve always served a variety of stouts in our tap room, but this one was way too good to keep to ourselves.”

If sweet Pastry Stouts are not your thing, fear not because Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 3 will be released alongside Rollin’ Deep to satisfy all the hop fiends out there.  This Double India Pale Ale employs the use of Mosaic hops – the first of the Alpha Abstraction Series to do so – to “provide a nice mix or fresh mango, citrus, and very complex tropical aromas.” Although Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 3 “has a different flavor profile from anything [Wild Leap has] brewed before”, this “big, juicy, balanced Double IPA” (8% ABV) will most assuredly still appeal to “connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.”

Rollin’ Deep and Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 3 will launch at a Double Release Party at Wild Leap Brew Co. on October 12 and will also enter distribution at or around that date.  You can expect to find these two Limited Release offerings available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in and around the Atlanta, LaGrange, Newnan, Peachtree City, Columbus, Athens, Gainesville, and Augusta areas of Georgia.  Prost!

Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 2 will officially debut at a Release Party at Wild Leap Brew Co. on Friday, August 3 and will enter distribution at or around that date.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Wild Leap’s distribution area in Georgia.  Prost!
