Clown Shoes Beer has announced a new hazy IPA brewed with terpenes — one of the first to market in this style — called Rainbows are Real.
Terpenes are aromatic oils found in natural botanical sources (including cannabis and hops), believed to have therapeutic benefits. In the case of the two terpenes found in Rainbows are Real, Linalool has been said to provide a feeling of relaxation and calm, while Beta-Pinene is used to help alleviate pain, inflammation and anxiety.
These terpenes enhance floral and pine notes and supplement sweet, citrusy hops, the brewery reports. The aromatic compounds elevate the beer’s aroma. In this case, their floral and piney flavors supplement the sweet malt backbone and juicy mix of Azacca, Citra and Mosaic hops.
Rainbows Are Real comes in at 6.75% ABV. It will be available in mid-June and sold in 4-pack cans nationwide at a suggested retail price of $11.99. To see where it is sold once available, check out the Clown Shoes beer finder.
