Bend, Ore.-based Full Sail Brewing has released its Brewmaster Reserve Capsize imperial pilsner.
Capsize imperial pilsner is similar in style to the Full Sail beer of the same name from the early 2000s, but has a new recipe. It is hopped with a combination of Cascade, Citra and crystal hops, giving a spicy Northwest backbone to the full-bodied golden lager. As a member of the Brewmaster Reserve Series, Capsize is an opportunity for Full Sail’s brewers to express their crfeativity and innovation.
“With an extra load of Cascade hops from start to finish, we have upended our Pilsner,” says Jim Kelter, Full Sail’s brewmaster. “Big hop flavors of citrus and pine abound, but with a smooth malt character this one is remarkably easy to drink.”
Capsize imperial pilsner has an ABV of 7 percent and 60 IBUs. It will be available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft from June through October throughout Full Sail’s regular distribution footprint.
