Tallgrass Brewing Debuts New Explorer Series Beer

Tallgrass Brewing Company in Manhattan, Kansas has announced its newest limited-release Explorer Series Beer: Flyin' Hawaiian, a pineapple-infused Double IPA. 

The beer will be available from August to October in all 17 states where Tallgrass beers are available, including the newest states in its footprint, Texas and Colorado.

Here is the release from Tallgrass:

Next up in the Explorer Series is the Flyin' Hawaiian, an 8.4% double IPA with pineapple slated to ship to wholesalers August-October. 

The Flyin' Hawaiian is brewed with Nugget hops to provide earthy and pine notes, while the interplay of Pacific Gem and Falconer's Flight hops creates notes of citrus, dark berries and tropical fruit. 

A burst of fresh pineapple purée enhances the hops with an extra layer of tropical sweetness, and the simple malt bill of 2-Row, C40 and Cara-Pils allows the hops to shine and erupt with tropical citrus flavors. 

Why the Flyin' Hawaiian? The name was first used for one of our cellarmen's cask beers. When our founder caught wind of the name, it was just too good to not slap on a can, and it had to be appropriated for our brewmaster's new double IPA.

Available in 16 oz. 4-packs, 1/2 bbl and 1/6 bbl kegs, this brand also marks the transition of Explorer Series beers from 12 oz. 4-packs to 16 oz. 4-packs. All Explorer Series beers will be packaged in 16 oz. 4-packs moving forward.
