Wild Leap Brew Co. Hits Summer with GR8FRUT Double IPA

Wild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of GR8FRUT, a grapefruit-inspired Double IPA, in late July 2021.

Here to fill your summer with some citrus goodness, GR8FRUT is a Double India Pale Ale that sources all its grapefruit flavor from “grapefruit-forward hop varieties such as Talus, Simcoe, and Apollo.” Coming in at 8.2% ABV, GR8FRUT “boasts flavor notes of tropical citrus and grapefruit” with absolutely no fruit juice added.

โ€œFor GR8FRUT, we took our favorite Grapefruit-forward hops and combined them to create a double IPA that tastes just like Pink Grapefruit juice,โ€ explains Chief Brewing Officer, Chris Elliott. โ€œWe have discovered that these hops have different elements of grapefruit flavors: some have notes of grapefruit rind and pith, while other hops like Talus have strong pink grapefruit juice flavors. The combination tastes just like the real fruit!โ€

GR8FRUT is actively rolling out now and will hang around only 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-focused establishments located in Georgia and other select markets throughout the Southeast. Prost!
