A new PINNER is coming this month from Oskar Blues Brewery.
The Longmont, Colo.-based brewery has announced it will be releasing Passion Fruit PINNER Throwback IPA, a 4.9 percent ABV IPA brewed with both puréed passion fruit and blood oranges.The new beer is based on Oskar Blues’ PINNER Throwback IPA (4.3 percent ABV), which was first released in 2014.
“Passion fruit is very prominent in PINNER Throwback IPA’s dry-hopped flavor spectrum, locking in on that and accentuating it alongside the existing mouthfeel and clean malt characteristics is a natural extension of what this beer is all about,” said Tim Matthews, head brewer at Oskar Blues, in a press release. “Melding fruit aromas and flavors with a lower ABV beer creates a killer light and refreshing Passion Fruit Pinner IPA for getting after it this summer.”
According to a press release, Passion Fruit PINNER Throwback IPA will be packaged in 12-ounce cans and is scheduled to ship to all 50 states “at the end of June.”
