Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA opens new year-round IPA series

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA will lead off new “Hop Circus”, a year-round series of rotating India pale ales.

The Asheville, North Carolina based brewery has found great success with their Hi-Pitch Mosaic India Pale Ale, as well as their hazy Hazy&Juicy&Hoppy&Fresh series of IPAs. Instead of departing too far from these hoppy successes, Hi-Wire is opting to tack on a rotating series of beer’s most popular style – the India pale ale.

Hi-Wire Hop Circus Tropical White IPA is the inaugural release in this “Hop Circus”, a white (wheat heavy) IPA. The “tropical’ is thanks to mango and pineapple fruit, plus a blast of white grape and citrus from Hallertau Blanc and Citra hops. “With the Hop Circus series, we get to meet in the middle by experimenting in the wide range of IPA styles, but keeping the beer at a more affordable price point,” says brewery co-owner Chris Frosaker.

Tropical White IPA, as well as all the Hop Circus releases, are available in 12-ounce cans and draft across the brewery’s entire distribution footprint.

Style: IPA (White IPA) (w/ Mango. Pineapple.)
Hops: Hallertau Blanc, Citra
Malts: Rolled Oats

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. One-Off Release.
Debut: September 2018

The fruit-forward mixed case showcases the brewery’s commitment to using real fruit. Four different styles have been selected to ring in the warmer weather: Passionfruit Saison, Pineapple IPA, Tangerine Lager, and a revival of last April’s Coconut Creme Ale.

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA (with with pineapple and oranges) goes national

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA

One of California’s most well-known breweries may truly be embracing hazy India pale ales. At the end of the day, IPA is really what put them on the map. Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA debuts in cans nationally later this month.

An unfiltered IPA already intermittently exists in the brewery’s lineup, part of theEnjoy By IPA series. In the near future, Stone is releasing Nor’East Nod Double IPA, a hat tip to hazy, juicy “New England-style IPA”,

Now another unfiltered, juice-forward IPA is joining the brewery’s Stone’s lineup – Vengeful Spirit IPA.  This hazy IPA will be bringing the juice, in the form of pineapple and Mandarin oranges.

We’ve often been inspired to brew beers on a theme. In 2007 it was black IPAs. 2008 saw Belgian influenced IPAs, and more than once it’s been Triple IPAs. It’s been fun to dive deep, and you’ve ridden those waves right along with us. But like you, we’ve also crave new breaks to surf. Right now, it’s tropically-inspired IPA’s as represented both by this flavored ale, Stone Tangerine Express IPA and others we’ve got waiting in the wings…. With Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA we employ a bit of tropical mythology to pay homage to our ever present gargoyle. Since 1996 he’s had our back, and yours, by representing an aggressive intolerance for commoditized beer. He constantly inspires us to forge ahead with resolve-even with the omnipresent forces of forceful evil. Vengeful spirits can be awesome when they are on your side.

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in late September 2017.

Style: IPA (w/ Pineapples, Oranges)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late September 2017
