Here’s a new approval just released by Cigar City Brewing today. Looks like they’ve decided to package the previous keg-only specialty Papaya IPA. This is their Jai –Alai IPA with dried Papaya added after fermentation. The fruit addition increases the sweetness and boosts the citrusy-hop flavor. This specialty brew will be released March 5th at the Florida brewers Guild BeerFest 2011 in Ybor City and again at the Cigar City Hunapuh release party on march 12th. According to the Florida Brewers Guild it will also be available at selected member pubs & tasting rooms in limited markets as a promotional benefit to the FBG. It will be packaged in 750ml bottles and come in at 7.5% ABV.
