Ale Asylum to Release High Coup Tropical IPA

MADISON, Wisc. – Let us be blunt: Ale Asylum will release High Coup, their tropical IPA across Minnesota, on 4/20. With a remarkably unique flavor profile, this bold yet approachable beer will ease drinkers into Spring with fruit-forward notes and a contrasting bitterness. It’s the second time High Coup has been released, but a first for the Minnesota market.

“We blended several varieties of hops for a truly enlightened beer drinking experience,”says Dean Coffey, brewmaster and co-founder of Ale Asylum. “As we recover from the harsh winter, High Coup comes to the rescue to put our taste buds in a tropical trance. It’s juicy, sessionable, and just what any hophead could hope for. We’re stoked to introduce High Coup to Minnesota this month.”
