Proof Brewing Co. Marks Return of College Football with Annual Release of Warpath IIPA

ProofBrewingLogo2Proof Brewing Co. (Tallahassee, Florida) has officially announced that it will begin the taproom-only release of its award-winning Warpath Imperial IPA at 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 29.

Released each year at the start of college football season “[to pay] tribute to [the brewery’s] hometown team,” Warpath is an Imperial India Pale Ale brewed “with over six pounds of hops per barrel” (hop bill: Mosaic, Cryo Azacca, El Dorado, and Citra hops).  Meant to “[lead] the way in a modern IPA world,” this beer’s “hop profile emulates the juicy flavors of New England-Style hazy IPAs but with the dryness and mouthfeel of West Coast-Styles.”  Coming in at 8% ABV, Warpath’s “hoppy flavor will galvanize your taste buds and your thirst for victory.”

“Last year, sales of 4-pack cans exceeded all expectations and we sold out quickly,” said Founder, Byron Burroughs. “We’ve increased production to ensure this Tallahassee tradition can be shared with friends at football tailgates, social events, or anywhere you are on the Warpath!”

Warpath Imperial IPA will officially release in the Tasting Room at Proof Brewing Co. at 4 p.m. on August 29.  These limited edition 4-packs of 12 oz. cans will only be available as long as supplies last.  Warpath is a brewery exclusive release that will not see distribution.  Prost!
