Say Hello To TropiCoastal Tropical IPA!

A taste of paradise awaits! Make some time for the coastline with TropiCoastal Tropical IPA, a refreshing India Pale Ale bursting with tropical fruit flavors, and the newest member of our year-round family of beers.

Brewed with Idaho 7®, Calypso, Strata, Mosaic®, and Lemondrop hops, TropiCoastal offers a golden oasis of ripe tropical fruit flavors reminiscent of pineapple, mango, and guava.  A bright, aromatic IPA with a quenching, easy-drinking finish, TropiCoastal IPA is poised to deliver sunny vacation vibes all year long. TropiCoastal Tropical IPA will release in 12 oz. Can 6-Packs, 12-Packs, and Draft beginning August 16.

TropiCoastal joins GLBC’s year-round family of IPAs, which includes Commodore Perry IPA, Great Lakes IPA, and Hazecraft IPA, and the rotating Imperial IPA Series. Each IPA delivers a unique drinking experience, explains Brewmaster Mark Hunger. “TropiCoastal fits right in with our hop-forward offerings, but it’s got its own style. We’re using some newer hop varietals we’ve never brewed with at this scale, and we’re tasting everything from stone fruit to citrus to passion fruit in this beer. It’s bright, refreshing, and brewed to appeal to drinkers who want big hop aroma and flavor with balanced bitterness. It’s a perfect go-to IPA.”

Framed by lush tropical plants, TropiCoastal’s can artwork by illustrator Sam Hadley features a picturesque waterfront hideaway washed in a golden sunset. The artwork speaks to TropiCoastal’s vibrant fruit flavors that evoke the feeling of a relaxing getaway any time of year.

TropiCoastal Tropical IPA will be available in 12 oz. Can 6-Packs and 12-Packs in the GLBC gift shop beginning August 4. Find it in 12 oz. Can 6-Packs and 12-Packs (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky) and Draft (all markets, limited) beginning August 16. Have an appetite for a beachy bash?
