Over the summer, Upland Brewing Co. will be releasing Hopsynth, a new dry-hopped sour ale that is made by blending “younger batches of our blonde base sour, Basis, then dry-hopping with new and experimental varieties of hops.”
According to Emily Hines, spokesperson for Upland, both eureka and Mosiac are the primary hops used in the beer and the final ABV should come in around 6 percent.
“As an American brewer, showcasing hops comes naturally to us,” reads the beer label. “This non-traditional combination results in a unique balance of tart and hoppy flavors, as well as a range of hop aromas, including pine, tropical fruits and citrus notes.”
Hopsynth will be packaged in both 330ml and 500ml bottles. In an email, Hines told Tenemu that the new beer is scheduled to ship to Upland’s entire distribution network in “mid-late July.”
