All Chinook hops: Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9 joins the ongoing imperial IPA series in October.

The Alpha Abstraction Series is designed to highlight a specific hop varietal. This edition is built on Michigan grown Chinook hops. While this particular hop is known to be big on pine flavors with hints of pineapple, this particular crop is the reverse- pineapple first, with hints of pine.

“With Michigan Chinook, we are finding that those flavors have almost flipped, and we are getting a much sweeter result with a strong pineapple essence.” – Chris Elliott, Head Brewer

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9 is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: October 2019

8% ABV

“Transcontinental” Wild Leap ETA IPA coming mid-month

Wild Leap ETA IPA

Wild Leap ETA IPA, a “transcontinental IPA” according to the brewery debuts in mid-September. 

Chris Elliott, Wild Leap’s head brewer, states this release is a much drier India pale ale that the IPAs they have brewed before. These new hop combinations combined with a big addition of oats have created a medium-bodied IPA with a fluffy mouthfeel.

ETA is a dryer IPA than any we have ever brewed and will fall behind both the Alpha Abstraction series and Chance IPA in sweetness.” – Chris Elliott

As for the “transcontinental” description, that’s tied to the artwork. The blue and green can was drawn with a 70’s vibe. “In the ’70’s, flying was a luxurious experience, not the rat race that it is today,” explains Rob Goldstein, CMO and brewery Co-Founder.

Look for Wild Leap ETA IPA mid-month in 12-ounce cans and draft.

Style: IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Mid-September 2019

7% ABV

“High in Decadence” Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout ships

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout, the brewery’s sixth new release in Summer 2019, debuts.

In keeping with the brewery’s line of ice cream themed beers (you shouldn’t have missed Bomb Pop Double IPA), LaGrange, Georgia based Wild Leap Brewing has released a new imperial milk stout, inspired by a big bowl of vanilla ice cream. According to the brewery, it’s the heaviest bodied beer Wild Leap has created to date.

The base is a boozy milk stout (brewed with lactose), and a heavy dose of vanilla. So much so, that the brewery’s CEO calls this release “high in decadence.” Wild Leap’s head brewer Chris Elliott used to work for Blue Bell Ice Cream, so the fusion of past and present jobs is sure to continue in future beers.

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.

Style: Imperial Milk Stout (w/ Vanilla Beans. Lactose.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: Late August 2019

Wild Leap expands Truck Chaser series with “Bomb Pop”

Wild Leap Truck Chaser Bomb Pop Can

Wild Leap Bomb Pop Double IPA is the second release in the brewery’s Truck Chaser Series as May winds down.

This ice cream themed series started earlier this year with Creamsicle Double IPA, brewed with orange, vanilla, and lactose. This second release is inspired by another popular ice cream of summer, the Bomb Pop. The tri-flavored popsicle was invented in Kansas City, Missouri in 1955. National Bomb Pop Day is celebrated on the last Thursday in June.

Wild Leap Bomb Pop Double IPA features the iconic “bomb” flavors of lime, cherry, and raspberry, brewed with lactose. Did they do it? They damn well did. Every sip tastes like a mind-bendingly weird blend of hops and ice cream. Seriously, your tastebuds and your brain fight each other on what this beer is until the alcohol hits your brain and stops caring and just wants more.

Available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time starting the last week of May 2019.

Style: Imperial IPA (Milkshake IPA) w/ Lime. Cherry. Raspberry. Lactose.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
