CLEVELAND—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) is prepped to release their February Seasonal, Chillwave Double IPA.
Name Origin: Great Lakes surfers work hard for their thrills. They wake before dawn, listening to the weather report like school kids hoping for a snow day. If the waves are worthy, they ride. No matter the cold, no matter the season, no matter the frozen crystals gathering in their beards, or the wind-whipping, white knuckle conditions they must face.
To these chill rust belt surf dudes, it’s all good. Yeah, it sounds a little crazy, but we didn’t craft our Double IPA for the faint of heart. With a flash of Mosaic hops and a kiss of honey malt, it’s a rush in a bottle. Ride our Chillwave. Then go out and find your own.
Flavor: Hop forward with a balanced blend of Mosaic and Nugget Hops.
Vitals: ABV: 9.4%; ABW: 7.5%; IBU: 80
