Stellwagen Beer Company
A Note on This Beer
Hop Melody: Huge quantities of rarely-seen South African Southern Passion Hops mix with Citra for a boldly aromatic and juicy IPA. Flavor Flight: Big n’ juicy passionfruit, guava and grapefruit swirl in this beer with echoes of red berry and cantaloupe, complete with just a hint of spice on the finish.
Okay, I admit it. I have no freakin’ clue what the song “Africa” by Toto is about.
But after cracking open a fresh can of today’s 12:30 Flight IPA, I think it’s about a guy discovering his love for African-grown Hops!
Southern Passion Hops aren’t common (yet) in craft, but Stellwagen coaxes out the variety’s flavors in full force. 12:30 Flight boasts big tropical juice explosions, and the enticing notes of berry, melon, and florals make me want to sing out loud: "I bless the hops down in Africaaa!"
Ours is the only stash leaving the Northeast though, so you’re gonna have to jump on it quick. It seems everyone who gets their hands on this juicy beauty is singing its praises louder than an 80s hit song refrain!
- “Insane NEIPA. Probably one of the best I’ve had and haziest.” @Steven S.
- “Excellent hops. I bless the rains!” @Robb L.
- “One of my most favorite in the Stellwagen lineup!” @Renee K.
Grab extra if you plan to share. If you’re like me, it’s gonna take a lot to drag you away from this beer. There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do!
