April will be a good month to be in Georgia, but not just because of the Masters Tournament.
Athens, Ga.-based Terrapin Beer Co. has announced the return of Cumulus Lupulus, an 8.1 percent ABV imperial IPA brewed with Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops at a rate of more than four pounds per barrel. In addition, the IPA features three different dry-hop additions using a Hop Cannon, which is a device that allows for earlier dry-hopping during fermentation.
The IPA was originally released in April 2017 as part of Terrapin’s Monster Beer Tour Series, a “high gravity beer series” that was launched after a Georgia state law was changed allowing breweries to sell beers over 6 percent ABV.
According to Terrapin’s website, Cumulus Lupulus will be packaged in both four- and six-packs of 12-ounce cans and will debut at Terrapin’s 16th Anniversary Carnival taking place on April 14 before being shipped to retailers throughout Terrapin’s normal distribution channels.
