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.
