April 22, 2016 – The Longmont, Colorado brewery is releasing “Extrovert IPA” in 36 states around the country in May. Extrovert joins “Introvert Session IPA” as a year-round offering in six-pack and draft.
The press release describes Extrovert as assertive with a big personality of 75 IBUs, yet reveals layers of complexity for the seasoned IPA fan. Extrovert IPA is dry hopped at one pound per barrel with a hop blend that plays well together, consisting of Jarrylo, Cascade, and Comet. Jarrylo is a Pacific Northwest hop, full of nuance with subtle stone fruit notes. Cascade brings citrus while Comet adds tropical flavors and pineapple notes, and is Extrovert & Introvert’s shared hop variety. In addition, rye and acidulated malt give the beer a dry mouthfeel and distinct bite. The lasting result is a hop melody like a basket of fruit with mouthwatering notes of pineapple, mango, and orange blossom, balanced by sweet biscuity malt. Extrovert finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness.
