350x350_terrapinJoin us on Thursday, September 17th when we welcome Terrapin Beer Co. to the pub for a special Flight Night Event featuring Vapricot Apricot Ginger Imperial IPA, their new collaboration offering with Cigar City Brewing!

All of you hopheads need to get excited about this one because this is the first time in the history of Terrapin’s Monster Beer Tour that the newest fall selection will actually be a collaboration offering . . . and it is with the always exciting Cigar City of Tampa, Florida!  Terrapin’s Spike Buckowski joined forces with Cigar City’s Wayne Wambles – widely known for his way with tropical hop flavors in IPAs – to create Vapricot, an Imperial IPA brewed with apricot puree and ginger to create a drinking experience that is both sweet and spicy. To punch things up to another level, they complimented those flavors with a hop bill boasting six varietals and then dry-hopped the brew with Citra, El Dorado, and Equinox hops. The final product weighs in at the expected monstrous numbers of 9.05% ABV and 70 IBUs.

For this Flight Night event on Thursday, we will be serving up Vapricot and the following three more Terrapin offerings in this delicious, hop-laden flight:

  • Hi-5 IPA – Like a memorable adventure along U.S. Route 101, “Hi-5” California Style IPA leads you down a road of pure adrenaline and beauty. Capturing the majestic flavor of citrusy hops that roll off your tongue like a white cap on an ocean wave, this scenic wonder will keep you in awe, sip after sip.  ABV – 5.9%  IBUs – 80
  • Hopsecutioner IPA – You love hops, you ask for hops, and Hopsecutioner delivers! This Killer IPA earns its title by being brewed with six different hops to create an aggressive, yet exceptionally well-balanced, beer. Expect citrus and pine on the nose with a beautifully bitter finish; a strong malt backbone keeps the bitterness in check. We brewed this IPA for hop lovers… you may lose your hop head over this one!  ABV – 7.3%  IBUs – 71
  • Rye Cubed Triple Rye IPA – Rye beers have been a part of our brewing arsenal from day one. “Rye”, “Rye Squared” and now “Rye Cubed” Triple IPA completes this trilogy of brewing excellence.  ABV – 10.7%  IBUs – 125

While you get your hop fix by sipping on these four tasty brews, representatives from Terrapin Beer Co. will be hanging out to chat with you about the brewery and the beer in your hand.

If you are a lover of all things lupulin, you already know that you have to get a taste of any IPA that Cigar City has had a hand in.  Start preparing your palate now for this hop bomb of a Terrapin flight, and we will see you all on Thursday!
