Strawberry Mint IPA- Our Newest Tap Room Series Beer

Upslope Strawberry Mint IPA

Strawberry Mint IPA

Upslope’s Newest Tap Room Series Beer

We’re excited to announce the newest installment in our Tap Room Series, the Strawberry Mint IPA! Inspired by strawberry gazpacho, a chilled European summer soup, this IPA offers crisp bitterness with a refreshing peppermint kick and some juicy, strawberry flavor. This unique fruited IPA is a great complement to the warmer spring season that’s almost upon us.

Upslope Tap Room Series

Upslope’s Tap Room Series is part of a rotating lineup of limited release 19.2-ounce cans that we package to give our fans a way to enjoy some of our most popular Tap Room exclusives outside of our brewery.

This signature beer features a subtle blend of peppermint and hops to offer a unique blend of floral and crisp herbal bitterness. That bitterness is balanced with the sweetness derived from the strawberries and the malt, giving this beer a refreshing character that doesn’t fit with the 7.5% ABV.

“We’re fortunate to present new brews to our fans nearly every month of the year. Whether through our seasonal Limited Release series, our Lee Hill Series or our Tap Room Series, there’s constantly a new, creative offering. This month, Upslope drinkers can enjoy a brewery favorite, the Imperial IPA, in a more approachable 12-ounce can as well as venture outside the box with our newest Tap Room Series Strawberry Mint IPA.”

                                                                                       – Henry Wood, Upslope’s Director of Sales and Marketing

Releasing at Both Locations on March 14th!

 

We’ll be releasing our  newest Tap Room Series, the Strawberry Mint IPA, this coming Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 in both of our tap rooms. This new IPA will be available both on draft and in 19.2-ounce bomber cans to go so it can join you on your spring-time adventures!
