If you are a brewery that just invested thousands in a new centrifuge, this news might sting a little bit. Another hazy IPA is hitting shelves. Terrapin Cumulus Lupulus debuts this month.
Think of this beer as a hop showcase. Terrapin Cumulus Lupulus brings Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops into play, at nearly 4 pounds per barrel. If you are in the hops purchasing business, that translates to expensive.
For the drinker, those hops mean an imperial India pale ale big on citrus, passionfruit, and kiwi. “Trop hops” as we call them. The beer is unfiltered and hazy, which means a glass of resiny, juicy goodness. Not to overuse the terms hazy and juicy, but that’s what Terrapin brings to the table in this new can. 12 ounces of juicy citrus, meant to be consumed as soon as possible.
Cumulus Lupulus is a great big juicy super hopped up unfiltered IPA with tropical fruit notes throughout the entire beer, from aroma to finish. – “Spike”, Terrapin Co-Founder & Brewmaster
