Dogfish Head Craft Brewery has unveiled Lupu-Luau IPA, a coconut-centric India Pale Ale brewed with a blend of toasted coconut, experimental hops and dehydrated coconut water.
Clocking in at 7.3% ABV and 45 IBUs, this tropical IPA is available nationally on taps and shelves this summer. Hazy with a white head, Lupu-Luau IPA gets its name from Lupulin, the company says: “the hop flower gland containing essential oils, and luau, because Lupu-Luau is a tropical party in your mouth.”
Lupu Luau IPA gets its tropical fruit, pineapple and citrusy aroma from an experimental hop that throws coconut and woodsy notes into the flavor profile of the beer.
“We worked hard to secure the majority of the full domestic yield of this experimental hop crop for years to come and Dogfish is currently the only brewery contracted to purchase it,” says Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “We use dehydrated coconut water that contains delicious natural sugars and flaked toasted coconut as centerpieces of the beer.”
