Heavy Seas TropiCannon Citrus IPA Now Available Year-Round

imageFrom Heavy Seas:

BALTIMORE, MD – Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the return of it’s popular Citrus IPA, TropiCannon, now available year-round. The product will be available in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.



TropiCannon is exploding with bright citrus aroma and flavor. Creating an exciting new variation on our flagship Loose Cannon, TropiCannon clocks in at the same 7.25% ABV as it's cousin, but packs a full blast of blood orange, grapefruit, mango and lemon flavor. We've downplayed some of Loose Cannon's piney-ness and amped up the citrus by swapping Centennial and Palisade hops for Amarillo and even more Simcoe. We've introduced dried grapefruit, orange and lemon peel in the brewing process and added mango, blood orange and more grapefruit post-fermentation.



"TropiCannon was a pleasant surprise for us in 2016," says Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. "It was originally planned as a limited release product, but so many people kept asking for it that we decided we needed to make it available on a year-round basis. At least for now. This is part of what makes the beer industry so fun!"
