A new winter seasonal from SweetWater Brewing Co. will hit shelves and drafts starting November 1: Squeeze Box IPA with grapefruit.
This beer has five tropical hop additions and dosed with a “shot of winter’s favorite citrus, grapefruit,” the company reports.
Squeeze Box IPA with grapefruit is 6.1% ABV with 45 IBUs. It features the hops Chinook, Columbus, Cascade, Simcoe, Goldings and Centennial, and the malts 2-Row, Munich, Wheat, 70/80 and Midnight Wheat.
Beer drinkers who enjoyed summer’s Goin’ Coastal IPA with pineapple will enjoy Squeeze Box’s similarities in style and drinkability, the company says.
Squeeze Box will be available November through January, on draft, in 12-oz. bottles (6-packs and cases), and in 12-oz. cans or bottles in the Winter Variety Pack. The suggested retail price is $6 per 6-pack.
The Winter Variety Pack with 12-oz. bottles also includes a retired beer that consumers voted to bring back for the season, in celebration of the brewery’s 20th anniversary: LowRYEder. This Rye IPA has spicy rye and hop bitterness, the company says.
