Terrapin Cumulus Lupulus Returns

Terrapin Cumulus Lupulus ReturnsFrom Terrapin:

This April, Terrapin Beer Co is bringing back Cumulus Lupulus, an Imperial IPA inspired by the Northeast Style.
Clocking in at 8.1% ABV, this brew boasts over four pounds of Amarillo, Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops per barrel. Three different hop editions in the whirlpool build a strong hop flavor, coupled with three different dry hop editions to strengthen the beer’s impressive hop presence. But this beer resembles a Northeast Style IPA in more than just hop flavor. We’re using a yeast strain that is used by brewers up in the Northeast, rather than our house strain. 
A new piece of equipment is making this brew even better – Terrapin recently acquired a Hop Cannon. The Hop Cannon is a small but powerful piece of equipment that has allowed for a lot of experimentation. Our team is testing opportunities for earlier dry hopping, while the beer is still fermenting, in hopes that it will enhance hop flavors and aroma. It has also allowed for dosing without opening tanks, preventing oxygen from getting in to the beer, and ensuring a consistent, high-quality product.
Cumulus Lupulus will be available throughout Terrapin’s distribution network for a limited time starting mid-April, releasing at Terrapin’s 14th Anniversary Carnival on April 14th. (Tickets available at:

Terrapin Beer Co. began as a daydream between founders John Cochran and Spike Buckowski, who brewed and released their first beer in 2002. Inspired by the creative culture of Athens, the brewery’s home, Terrapin continues to produce unique beers year after year.

Whether you’re joining us for a brewery tour at our tasting room, drinking a Hopsecutioner at your favorite watering hole, sipping some Hi-5 on your back porch, or enjoying a RecreationAle after a long day on the trail, we hope you appreciate the dedication we’ve put into our beers.
