A Note on This Beer
Heaps of Hops: Juiced-up Amarillo, Citra, and Mosaic Hops are a match made in beer heaven in this fruity DIPA. Vine-Fresh Flavor: Candied oranges, pithy grapefruits, and ripe apricots kiss the taste buds. Viscous Mouthfeel: Sticky fruit juice caresses the palate like a gentle lover.
Instead of using a cheesy pickup line to “woo” your date, I suggest handing them a can of today’s Swipe Ripe Double IPA — it’s tropical fruit-smoothie flavor is sure to sweep them off their feet and into your arms!
And, you’ll earn some serious bragging ripes — er...I mean, bragging rights for introducing them to their new favorite brewery. This drool-worthy fruitbomb comes from Massachusetts’ newest craft masters at Castle Island.
They’ve been open for just four years, and in that short time the brewers have enamored the palates of judges left and right, earning themselves medals at both GABF and the U.S. Open Beer Championship!
And today’s swoon-worthy brew will hit you harder than Cupid’s arrow! Made with real apricot puree to enhance the fruity hop bill, every gulp of this seductive nectar tastes like biting into a ripe, tender piece of stone fruit.
With brews like Swipe Ripe in their arsenal, Castle Island shows they can sling juice with the best of them: BeerAdvocate user @ThrewRedButter even wrote that today’s pour “competes with and surpasses a lot of Tree House and Trillium beers!”
There might be plenty of fish in the craft beer sea, but there aren’t many who rival those East Coast goliaths! That's why you and your beer-lovin’ boo will be just as smitten as I am with Castle Island’s creations.
Not to mention that Swipe Ripe’s hefty 9% ABV might improve your chances of a second date.
