A Note on This Beer
There are so many reasons to visit Lupulin Brewing.
For one, it’s a family affair — one of the owners even sent his son to apprentice at a Swedish brewery before they opened! For another, these midwest mavericks cleaned up at the 2020 U.S. Open Beer Championships — they won not one, not two, but THREE medals!
So, when Lupulin released their brand new Sophistry 09 IPA, it’s safe to say people paid attention.
It’s the latest edition in their innovative Sophistry series, and it boasts an impressive lineup of SIX different types of hops!
Trident, Citra Cryo, Chinook, Kohatu, Ekuanot Cryo, and Bravo Hops combine their powers for a juice-drenched citrus bomb of epic proportions.
The taste is an exhilarating bouquet of tangy oranges, sweet tangerines, and intoxicating passionfruit, with a pillowy-soft mouthfeel. Each sip is like drinking freshly squeezed tangerine and mango juice, with a whisper of fresh pine on the finish.
It’s got hopheads like @Mike S. shouting, “Fantastic! Glad I have 1/6 barrel of this!”
Unfortunately, we can’t give it to you by the barrel. But, we can hook you up with a can or two — if you’re quick, that is. The Sophistry series is always changing, and this version will only be available for a limited time!
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!

Bright and cheery. Tangerine up front and pine finish for certain.
Hazy, hoppy, & strong! Very nice & drinkable!
Nice. Juicy, and sweet.
Bitter upfront, juicy middle, smooth back, I love this brew
Juicy, hoppy and piney; what else do you want in an IPA. That’s what I want and this is one is down extremely well
Nice and juicy. Very light fruit.
A very light IPA with juicy fruit blast at the end
Citrus (orange and tangerine) mango, subtle bitterness. Solid NEIPA.
Delicious beer. Very citrusy and light
Definitely true description with the piney finish but the tangerine notes help balance the sip
Dank, juicy, hoppy, perfectly balanced. Everything I would want and expect from a sophistry.
Nice light, refreshing IPA
Crisp, hoppy, and super refreshing at the end of a long day
I hate checking beers in with this Please halp
A mighty nice one
Almost perfect, wish it was more fragrant
Citrus and mango juiciness!
Big citrusy hop bomb ! Great balance with some definite bitterness. Nice light smooth finish.
Feels very "classic IPA", in a good way. So many beers go over the top its good to find a side IPA.
Very citrusy, starting with a clementine sweetness and ending with grapefruit bitterness. Refreshing and very satisfying
Good clean ipa
bitter, zesty IPA. a real IPA
