India Pale Ale | ABV: 11 %
This Triple IPA quickly puts you in a party mood. The brew delivers a dangerously smooth 11% ABV. It’s a bit of a throwback in hop profile, with a peachy, piney blend of Chinook, Simcoe, and Mosaic. “It reminds me a bit of those old-style West Coast IPAs,” says head brewer Pete Langheinrich. “Triple Secret Probation has just enough sweetness to stand up to the hops, but its dry enough that it’s not in any way syrupy.” As the highest ABV hop-forward brew that Asheville Brewing has created to date, this one will only be available in half pours. Despite what Blutarsky may tell you, this is not a beer to drink heavily.
This beer was brewed in celebration of the screening of National Lampoon’s Animal House for our annual April Comedy Movie Month series at our Merrimon Avenue movie theater. We show a different classic comedy movie each week, create a brand new beer for each movie, then let the public suggest names for the beers with our Head Brewer picking the winning name.
