Smuttynose Brewing Company (Hampton, New Hampshire) has announced that its Smuttlabs project will officially make its highly-anticipated return on June 30 with the brewery-exclusive release of Lady Stardust New England IPA.
Smuttlabs, the creative and innovative subset of Smuttynose Brewing Company, is back at long last and kicking off its return with a take on the wildly popular New England-style India Pale Ale. Lady Stardust is a “delicate IPA” that sources its eye-catching “golden haze . . . from hops, flaked wheat, and flaked oats.” Brewed with El Dorado, Amarillo, Citra, Hüll Melon, Ekuanot and Mandarina Bavaria hops, Lady Stardust offers a “mild bitterness” and a juicy character loaded with notes of “pineapple, citrus, mango, and just a dash of pear.”
“Although I am captaining the creative foundation of the new Smuttlabs beer concepts, I am excited to work in collaboration with my team of brewers to create the best product possible,” said Charlie Ireland, Head Brewer of Smuttlabs. “This collective mentality is what Smuttynose strives for in our creative process.”
Smuttynose will offer a special sneak peek of Lady Stardust New England IPA at its “A Walk Among the Stardust” event at the brewery on Friday, June 29th from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. (click here to learn more). The brewery-only release will follow at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 30. Lady Stardust will be available for purchase in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans (two-case limit per person) during the release. This highly limited offering is not expected to see distribution. Prost!
