Surly Brewing Co. has just announced a “yummy” new ale as its 2019 fall seasonal release.
The Minneapolis, Minn.-based brewery has released Yummi Bear, a 6.9 percent ABV “West Coast” IPA brewed with Centennial, El Dorado, Simcoe and Warrior hops. According to the brewery, while the profile of the IPA was definitely influenced by IPAs popular on the west coast, there are some deviations as well.
“You’ll notice it says ‘inspired’ up top,” reads a post on Surly’s website. “Departing from the dank, resinous profile of a traditional West Coast IPA, Yummi Bear finds its groove with wave after wave of bright, citrusy flavor and just a hint of tropical fruit character from the hops, capped off by a classically dry West Coast finish.”
According to Surly, Yummi Bear West Coast IPA is packaged in 12-ounce cans that are now available across the brewery’s distribution network.
