SAN DIEGO — This August, San Diego-based Saint Archer Brewing Company will be launching the newest addition to their core lineup, the Tropical IPA. Brewed with real fruit, this West Coast Style Tropical IPA uses Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe Hops with a blend of real mango and passionfruit for a balanced bitterness and drinkability. The Tropical IPA will join the IPA, Blonde Ale, White Ale, Pale Ale, Hazy IPA, and Mexican Lager as the latest of Saint Archer’s core beers.
“Brewing the Tropical IPA with true mango and passionfruit has allowed us to enhance the hop characters that Citra and Mosaic give to the beer,” shared Senior Director of Brewery Operations and multi-award winning brewer, Yiga Miyashiro. “We’ve brewed this beer here in San Diego to be crushable. Our hope is that our friends far and wide will feel those vibes, find their oasis, and enjoy it.”
The Tropical IPA will be available in 12 oz. six packs in select stores throughout California, Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon, Nevada, Washington and Arizona, as well as on draft in multiple locations and both San Diego tasting rooms in Miramar and Leucadia.
