Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) announced today that Luau Krunkles Passion Fruit-Orange-Guava IPA will be joining the brewery’s Year-Round lineup in 2018.
The infamous Krunkles, Terrapin’s “fictitious brewer who travels the world making creative IPAs”, is entering some new territory in his brewing career now that Luau Krunkles has emerged from its previous two limited releases to finally provide its creator with some year-round recognition. Just as the beer’s full name indicates, Luau Krunkles has “tropical aromas of Passion fruit, Orange and Guava [that dominate] the nose while a big juicy hop flavor and smooth bitterness complement the balance of the beer.” This offering clocks in at 6.5% ABV and 72 IBUs.
Luau Krunkles will begin its Year-Round availability any day now. You can expect to find Luau Krunkles in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and throughout the rest of Terrapin Beer Co.’s distribution area.

Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) recently announced that Luau Krunkles Passion-Orange-Guava IPA has been officially released as a part of the brewery’s latest IPA Survival Kit 12-pack.
The gallivanting ways of the IPA-loving Krunkles, Terrapin Beer Co.’s globe-trotting “legendary brewer” (click here for the full story), led him to Hawaii this time around to explore and experience local ingredients and flavors. The research he conducted there has led to the creation of Luau Krunkles Passion-Orange-Guava IPA, a hoppy brew whose “tropical aromas of Passionfruit, Orange and Guava dominate the nose while a big juicy hop flavor and smooth bitterness complement the balance of the beer.”
Officially replacing Krunkles Down Under, 12 oz. cans of Luau Krunkles Passion-Orange-Guava IPA are available now exclusively within the fall installment of the IPA Survival Kit 12-pack. This offering joins Hopsecutioner IPA, Hi-5 California-style IPA, and RecreationAle in this mixed 12-pack of cans. A very limited amount of Luau Krunkles will also be kegged and head out to distribution.
