For the hardcore Tropicalia fans: Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze returns

Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze

A new riff on one of Georgia’s most popular India pale ales returns today – Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze.

Tropicalia, Creature Comfort’s year-round IPA has truly made a name for itself in the southeast. Building on that popularity, the Athens, Georgia based brewery has released Tropicalisma, and Double Dry Hop Trop into the small-batch “Trop” inspired family. Today brings back Imperial Trop Haze, three words that make hopheads break a sweat.

CREATURE COMFORTS LAUNCHES YEAR-ROUND LAGER

The biggest Tropicalia fans ate this release up when it debuted last October. Between the name, and the hops (Citra, Centennial, and Galaxy), just the description was enough to sell it out.

Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze will be available in 16-ounce cans and draft when the brewery opens on July 26th.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra, Centennial, Galaxy
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Brewery Only.

Summer Tritonia: Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime

Creature Comforts Cucumber Lime Tritonia can

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is back in cans ahead of the official start of summer.

In 2017, Cucumber and Lime Tritonia cans were finally released complimenting the popular draft offering. The base tart gose is brewed with coriander and sea salt, plus a blend of fresh lime and cucumber.

Thanks to the brewery’s added capacity at their second facility in their hometown of Athens, Georgia, the Tritonia series is a little less scarce and a lot more delicious.

Cucumber has a subtle flavor, making this vegetable a little complicated to pop in beer. Creature Comforts has taken the time to dial in the cucumber flavor in order, striking a beautiful balance with the tartness of the lime and base gose, and summery, garden-freshness of the cukes.

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is one of a few “Tritonia”  variants available during the year.12-ounce cans and draft will be available for a limited time starting June 18th.

Style: Gose (w/ Lime, Cucumber, Sea Salt, Coriander)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Distribution: Athens/Atlanta
Latest Return: 6/18/19

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Raspberries. Oak Aged.)

Creature Comforts Tropicalia is coming to 16-oz cans soon

Creature Comforts Tropicalia 16oz Cans

Creature Comforts Tropicalia, the Athens, Georgia based brewery’s top-selling beer, and one of the Southeast’s most popular India pale ales, is coming to 16-ounce cans this summer.

Creature Comfort’s massive success has a lot to do with Tropicalia. This balanced, juicy IPA has a very loyal following, so much so, that for a while stores would limit sales of this year-round beer to just one 6-pack per person.

For the loyal Tropicalia acolytes, expect a new format coming your way this summer – Tropicalia 16-ounce cans. The pint-size cans are a hot packaging format in the beer industry, and for Creature Comforts. 16-ounce “Trop” cans are a no-brainer. The brewery has been releasing 16-ounce cans for a while now, but only for their taproom/small batch releases.

David Stein, Creature Comforts co-founder and head brewer tells Beer Street Journal that fans can expect this larger can format sometime in June 2019. He also noted that the 12-ounce cans will remain in the brewery’s lineup as well.

Style: IPA

Availability: 12oz Cans, 16oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round
Debut (16oz): June 2019 (Estimated)

6.6% ABV
