Full Sail Brewing Launches Tropic Supreme IPA and Cosmic Gorge Hazy Pale
Two new beers join the year-round line up from Hood River’s Full Sail Brewing Company. This month, the brewery will roll out Tropic Supreme IPA, a West Coast Style IPA with a touch of the tropics and Cosmic Gorge, a hazy pale ale with flavor that is out of this world.
“At Full Sail, our mission has always been to consistently brew world-class, balanced beers that celebrate the PNW. We are constantly inspired by the beautiful area we get to live in and are stoked to brew these two new offerings to reflect it” said Brewmaster Greg Doss.
“Tropic Supreme IPA is a refreshing IPA exploding with juicy aromas of tropical fruit, berries, and stone fruits. Pale malt and oats combine to create a clean golden base for a massive punch of Mosaic and Citra hops. This beer is high on hop aromatics yet perfectly balanced,” added Doss. Tropic Supreme IPA is available year round in 12oz cans, in six packs and 12 packs and draft and arrives at ABV 7.0% IBU 55.
According to Doss, “Cosmic Gorge Hazy Pale is brewed with pale and wheat malt along with a generous addition of oats creating a hazy golden canvas for the hops to shine. We added a huge hit of Triumph and Mosaic hops along with our juicy yeast strain to deliver bright notes of green and orange melon, citrus, and stone fruits resulting in an easy drinking anytime hazy beer. Cosmic Gorge is available year round in 12oz 6-pk cans and draft and comes in at ABV 5.9.% IBU 20.
Both labels are designed by local designer, Steve Cross of Ambient. The label design pays tribute to Full Sail’s story and sense of place in the Pacific Northwest with its familiar silhouette of snowcapped Mt. Hood, treescape and iconic sail, along with eye-catching bursts of color and imagery that reflect the personality of the beer.
