Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Hopnaut Double Juicy IPA in October 2019.
Developed to take the place of Hop Disciples IPA in Great Divide’s Tank Farm Series, Hopnaut is Juicy Double India Pale Ale “brewed and double dry-hopped with an unearthly amount of Simcoe, El Dorado, Mosaic and Huell Melon hops.” This hop bill – which amounts to “over a pound and a half of hops per barrel” – lends this DIPA “bold tropical fruit and citrus notes along with hints of berry, stone fruit, pine and bubblegum.” Coming in at 8% ABV, Hopnaut promises to be an “an extraterrestrial sensory experience.”
“With the success of our Hazy IPA, our brewers have been experimenting with a lot of hop-heavy hazy and juicy IPAs on the pilot system,” explained Bill Bertsch, Sr. Director of Brewery Operations. “Hopnaut will be a hit with New England-style IPA fans but also those who appreciate a well-balanced, filtered IPA.”
Hopnaut Double Juicy IPA is available now and is scheduled to stick around through January 2020. You can expect to find this new Tank Farm offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado and throughout the rest of Great Divide’s distribution territory. Prost!
