Wild Leap Coco Flamingo, a collaboration with Birmingham, Alabama’s Trim Tab Brewing, debuts in late June.
This is the first time these two breweries have collaborated. The base beer is a hazy double India Pale Ale, brewed with toasted coconut, tangerine, and lime.
Wild Leap Coco Flamingo will be available in Georgia by the end of June, Alabama, and Tennessee by the first week of July.
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. Available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time starting the last week of May 2019.

May brings the 7th edition of Wild Leap Brewing’s Alpha Abstraction Double IPA, a series hop heads should have checked out by now. The series is a blitz of everything a juicy IPA should be, mixed with a rotating cast of dank hops.
It was the 5th edition early this year that really blew us away – it’s hazy IPA done right. Late March brought the 6th edition, brewed with Lotus hops. This release features a hop most have never heard of – Barbe Rouge. The hop is native to France and boasts flavors of strawberry, blackcurrant and, cherry.
Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 7 is available for a limited time in 12-ounce cans and draft.
Style: Imperial Juicy/Hazy IPA
Hops: Barbe Rouge
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Rotating.
Debut: Early May 2019
Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 6 is hitting shelves now, the 6th formulation of the brewery’s popular imperial IPA.
Last month, we finally tried our first Alpha Abstraction (#5) from Wild Leap and were thoroughly impressed. As some folks have probably learned the hard way, just because your IPA is hazy, it doesn’t make it good. Wild Leap’s Alpha Abstraction Series is exactly what have come to expect (and want) from this style.
Since this series is ever-changing, you’ve missed your shot at AA #5, but coming in hot is Alpha Abstraction #6, brewed with Lotus hops. Wild Leap states this release boasts vanilla, berry, and orange flavors, finishing with a soft bitterness.
Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 6 is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.
Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late March 2019
Wild Leap Prize Inside Cracker Jack Stout hits shelves, where the beer IS the prize inside.
This new imperial stout is basically the boozy beer equivalent of Cracker Jacks. The stout is brewed with peanuts, caramel, and caramel malt. Think of it like that childhood box of popcorn, but with a potential for a hangover with overindulgence.
The prize inside? It’s the beer for sure. So many of these dessert-inspired imperial stouts go overboard with the flavor semblances to their sugary inspirations. Wild Leap opted for a more subtle flavor, and in our opinion that makes a better beer. After each sip of Prize Inside, you are left with a lingering aroma of the iconic caramel popcorn, leading you ready for another sip. It’s not cloying, heavy, or overwhelming. (And pairs perfectly with real Cracker Jacks, BTW.)
Wild Leap Prize Inside is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.
8.5% ABV, 30 IBUs
It took us until the fifth edition of the beer to finally find out what all the excitement is surrounding LaGrange, Georgia’s Alpha Abstraction Series. What this long means we waited too long.
Wild Leap Brewing’s reputation in the beer world is made by Alpha Abstraction aka “AA”. The double India pale ale is one of the best juicy/hazy style IPAs in Georgia right now. While each release uses a different hop bill, the response from fans is clear- they love it.
Wild Leap Alpha Extraction #5 is double dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops, finishing with just a hint of bitterness. This 12-ounce can of juicy goodness is velvety smooth to the point of being creamy, lingering with tropical fruit hop flavors that linger with every sip. In our opinion, this a great example of why the hazy IPA is popular.
AA #5 is a limited release in 12-ounce cans and draft. Wild Leaps states the 6th edition is coming in mid-March.
Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Nelson Sauvin
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: Early February 2019
