A Note on This Beer
To create today’s Fruit Puncher IPA, the GABF award-winning brewers at Odd13 joined forces with the highly sought after Carton Brewing. Together, they set out to create something special: a fruit punch IPA!
Made with 6 different types of fruit and a boatload of hops, Fruit Puncher is pushing the boundaries of IPA fruit infusion, and Tavour is the only place to get it outside of Colorado.
Never tasted an IPA with 6 different fruits in it? Don’t sweat it, neither had we. But man, this thing is delicious!
Fruit Puncher is loaded with fruit. When I asked exactly how much they used, Odd13 sent me a list so long my jaw dropped. We’re talkin’ multiple pounds of mango, peach, pineapple, papaya, cherry, AND strawberry. I’m not sure I’m even capable of the kind of mathematics needed to add it all up, but it’s a lot of freakin’ fruit!
Fruit Puncher tastes like an entire produce section crammed into a 12oz can, and then doused with hoppy dankness. Odd13 hopped up this bad boy with 4lbs per BBL of ultra juicy Amarillo and Mosaic Hops, then they added lactose for a super soft and creamy mouthfeel. But with such a massive amount of hops, it still maintains a lingering, resinous finish.
This hop-filled fruit-bomb will never be available outside of the Rocky Mountain State, except for the few cases we managed to smuggle across state lines. Anyone looking to try this juice-packed, lupulin loaded creation better get it while the gettin’s good. Fruit Puncher won’t be around long.
Rated 4.05 on Untappd by the lucky few who have tasted it.
