Wild Leap Brew Co. Continues Limited DIPA Series With Release of Alpha Abstraction Vol. 16

Wild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 16 in early March 2021.

The latest release in Wild Leap’s experimental Double IPA Series that “explores hop varieties and features a varied hop profile in each volume,” Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 16 is Hazy/Juicy Double India Pale Ale double dry-hopped with the “elusive” Hopsteiner EXP 06300 hops. Coming in at 8% ABV, Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 16 “[delivers] passion fruit and tropical flavors with hints of orange and creamy caramel.”

“There are many experimental hop varieties that come and go every year from hop producers, but unlike the experimental hops we’ve used for the Alpha Series in the past, the Hopsteiner EXP 06300 is on its way out of the market,” says Elliott. “Due to the low yields it produced, the hop producer is no longer allocating acreage for this variety. This is unfortunate because it instantly became one of our favorite hops. It’s full of clean and balanced tropical and caramel notes, so enjoy it while it lasts!”

Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 16 officially released on March 1 and will be available only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Wild Leap’s distribution footprint in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.
