We just received some IPA news from Elysian Brewing Company. They plan to get a bit manic about IPA in the coming months.
Also, Avatar Jasmine IPA (one of Mrs. Beerblog’s most favorite beers ever) is about to make its return and is getting a facelift. The brewery reports that after a little hiatus due to difficulties securing quality jasmine flowers, Avatar Jasmine IPA will soon be returning to taps and shelves.
Here is the information about the manic IPA series straight from Dick Cantwell, brewmaster at Elysian:
So many IPAs, so little time…
Elysian Brewing Company is kicking it’s Manic IPA Series in February of 2012 with Idiot Sauvin, an IPA both fiercely fruity and floral, made with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. The beer has appeared before only at Elysian’s pubs, and will be issued in both 22 oz bottles and draft.
Then in June will come Prometheus, an aggressively aromatic blend of Northwest classic Chinook, Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo hops fondly familiar to Elysian regulars.
Rounding out the year will be Valhalla, a reddish fall-into-holiday IPA using Sorachi Ace and Citra hops, scheduled for release in October. Too many IPAs? Bah, humbug!
Manic Release Summary:
Idiot Sauvin :: FEB – APR
Prometheus :: MAY – AUG
Valhalla :: SEPT – DEC
