I scream, you scream, we all scream for IIPAs (and also for ice cream, at times). Insurrection, our Imperial IPA, has made its annual return to our beer lineup. Many Fulton loyalists hail this appearance as one of their favorite beer releases of the year. If you’ve not had Insurrection before, hunt it down. Insurrection is the burliest IPA we brew, clocking in at 9.5% ABV and 95 IBU. Every bottle is overflowing with exotic hops, showcasing the distinct white grape and tropical fruit notes of the elusive New Zealand-grown Nelson Sauvin variety. Thanks to New Zealand’s unique growing conditions and limited acreage, Nelsons are one of the rarest and most sought after hop variety in the world. As a result, we are only able to obtain one shipment of these each year, most of which goes into a single batch ofInsurrection. This year’s batch is on the street now, but it won’t hang around for long. Find a 4-pack of 12 oz bottles at a liquor store near you, or swing by the taproom for a pour. It will also be making brief draft appearances at better beer bars and restaurants around town throughout the month of March.
