Terrapin Cumulus Lupulus Cans Coming In March

07 March 2017

imageWe brought you a peek at this beer, and now the official details fromt Terrapin:

Terrapin Beer Co’s Monster Beer Tour line is back with Cumulus Lupulus, an unfiltered Imperial IPA. The beer is a new variation of IPA for Terrapin, who’s best-selling beers are Hopsecutioner (an American IPA), Hi-5 (California Style IPA), and RecreationAle (Session IPA).

Clocking in at 8.1% ABV, Cumulus Lupulus boasts over four pounds of Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops per barrel. All of that hop flavor isn’t going anywhere. Since there’s no filtration, everything is bolder. Tropical, juicy aromas give way to a smooth bitterness and a full mouthfeel.

“Over the last 15 years, we’ve brewed a ton of IPA styles, ranging from Session IPAs to Black Belgian IPAs, and everything in between. We’ve never done an unfiltered IPA before because it’s more fragile to package and distribute, so we’re excited to launch Cumulus Lupulus” says VP of Sales and Marketing, Dustin Watts.

Packing so many hops into the brew and not getting too much bitterness meant a shift in hop additions. The brewers shifted most of the hop editions to the whirlpool. “The goal of the late hop additions was to bring out the incredible aroma and flavors of the hops by not driving off oils and volatiles as well as not extracting too much bitterness” explains Jack Albanese, Terrapin’s Director of Operations. The beer is also dry hopped at three different stages to infuse even more hop aroma and flavor.

The beer is the first of three for the year in the Monster Beer Lineup, originally created after Georgia raised the ABV cap from 6.0% to 14%. Terrapin’s Monster Beer Tour is all about big, bold beers and Cumulus Lupulus doesn’t disappoint. This may be a big beer, but don’t let it sit! Because it’s unfiltered, the beer should be consumed soon after purchase.

From the label:
Cumulus Lupulus imperial IPA is unfiltered to showcase its beauty. Brewed with over four pounds of hops per barrel for a luscious tropical hop flavor and aroma, this hazy and resinous brew will keep your head above the clouds. 
ABV: 8.1%
IBU: 101
SRM: 5.9

Cumulus Lupulus will be packaged in 12 oz. cans and 1/6 bbl kegs, and available in limited quantities throughout Terrapin’s distribution footprint. Look for it on shelves in late March!
