upland falkor

Bloomington, IN — Upland Brewing Co. announced today that Side Trail Series #6, Falkor, will be released September 15th on draught at select craft beer bars throughout our distribution territory and on tap at all Upland retail locations September 18th.

Beer Description: This beer is all about late addition hops, allowing us to create big hop aroma and flavor, without being overly bitter. The aroma is complex; floral, spicy and tropical, with notes of grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, and pine. Pleasant spicy bitterness is quickly followed by flavors of tropical and stone fruits. The body is smooth and drinkable with a touch of residual sweetness from honey malt. Orange peel and coriander provide delicate spice complexity to round out this IPA. American ale yeast helps create a smooth, low ester flavor profile.

Galaxy hops are the driving force in this complex aroma of this White IPA, which also includes notes of grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, and pine. The body is smooth with a touch of residual sweetness from honey malt, while orange peel and coriander round out a quite other worldy drinking experience.

ABV: 6.9%

IBU: 69

About the Brewery

Located in Bloomington, Indiana, Upland’s rich history dates all the way back to 1998. Taking traditional recipes and making them a bit more awesome, Upland Brewing Co. came up with their own recipes rooted with inspiration from good beer and good friends, providing a fresh local option to their communities. The name Upland comes from the term geologists gave to this area of Southern Indiana land which was never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The adversity of the land bred independent thinkers who had strong wills, a connection to the land, and a wry sense of humor about life. Upland’s approach to brewing beer honors the spirit of these people and this place.
