Wild Leap has released Vol. 12 in its signature Alpha Abstraction Double IPA series. Vol. 12 features Belma hops to give it one of the most dominant citrus flavors of the Alpha series to date. Alpha Abstraction Vol. 12 is now on shelves.
“Our goal for the Alpha series was to create a beer that tastes as close to fruit juice as possible using only water, malt, hops and barley,” said Wild Leap Chief Brewing Officer Chris Elliott. “We first experimented with Belma hops in pilot batches and the results were phenomenal. Out of those pilot batches came some of our favorite IPAs to date.”
Alpha Abstraction Vol. 12 is a juicy, double dry-hopped IPA and boasts a bright citrus flavor with notes of strawberry and melon.
“We’ve had previous Alpha releases that have had notes of strawberry and melon with the citrus flavor in the background,” said Wild Leap CEO and Co-Founder Anthony Rodgriguez. “With Vol. 12, the Belma hop brings those citrus flavors to the forefront.”
The brewery also recently released its Cookies & Cream Stout, a sweet, creamy beer to go in its exclusive stout collection. Wild Leap says its Cookies & Cream offering is a “big, sweet milk stout brewed with cocoa, vanilla and lactose.” Crafted to taste like cookies and cream ice cream, this approach to beer is a style distinctive to the Wild Leap brand.
Voted America’s Best New Brewery of 2019 by USA Today, LaGrange, Georgia-based Wild Leap offers trademark IPAs and ales along with seasonal porters, stouts and Double IPAs.
