Summer craft beers are quite the talk of the town this time of year. They are becoming more and more popular, especially within the local Indianapolis beer circle. We are thrilled to announce that this season at Payless Liquors, we are offering a majority of the hottest craft-beer products out there! Here are a few of the big IPAs we recommend you enjoy this summer.
Stone RuinTen IPA
First released in 2012 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Stone Brewing’s Ruination DIPA, RuinTen has now become a yearly release. Brewed with five pounds of hops per barrel, the process adds a heavier malt bill, balance and alcoholic depth. The dry-hopping of the brew has also doubled, with a large amount of Citra and Centennial hops. RuinTen is guaranteed to please your palate with a mixture of aromatic and resinous hoppiness. With 10.8% ABV you can buy these 22 oz. bottles for $8.99.
Founders Double Trouble
With a 100 overall rating by RateBeer.com there is no reason not to try this IPA! Founders Double Trouble Imperial pays homage to summer with fruity and piney aromatic hop notes. The pungent scents of juicy apricot and peach flourish. Bread and caramel malt flavors also hit your tongue at first sip. This brew is meant to turn your world upside down—note the logo. Crisp and bitter, enjoy Double Trouble during these summer months. We have it available 9.4% ABV $12.99 4NR.
Sun King Grapefruit Jungle
Last, but not least, an IPA that has certainly created a buzz around the Indianapolis area: Grapefruit Jungle was the first beer by Sun King to sell out in a matter of days. The brew is a tribute to the 1955 film, Blackboard Jungle, starring Glenn Ford and Sidney Poitier. Grapefruit Jungle focuses on the citrusy high alpha hops. Flavors of grapefruit, orange and tangerine run wildly through the brew. Bursting with hop flavor and aroma, Grapefruit Jungle is any hop lover’s dream! It’s fantastic beers like this one that has allowed Sun King to become one of the best breweries in Indiana. We caution you that this product is going fast, so get it while you can! Get it for $18.99 4NR 7.5% ABV 77 IBUs.
