A Note on This Beer
My buddies always tease me for what they call my “screw it, let’s do it” mentality.
That crazy steep slope at the ski resort? Screw it, let’s do it. The famous naked bike ride in Portland? Sure, screw it, let’s do it.
Oh, and downing a six-pack of the brand new Tropical Trance Milkshake Imperial IPA in one night? I think you can guess my answer…
But that’s where you and I should really draw the line. Because, as a one-time-only release, I’m sure we’d both regret pounding our whole stash of this fruit-soaked brew all at once. To score more, we’d have to travel all the way to Wisconsin and visit The Brewing Projekt.
As one of Food & Wine’s 19 Craft Breweries Worth Going Out of Your Way For, the trip would be totally worth it for more Tropical Trance. But, by the time we get there, I’m not confident they’ll have any left!
Especially since, for this special collab, they joined forces with the local crafters at Eagle Park Brewing whose brews as so in-demand, out-of-state craft fans plead on social media, “we need more clutch Milwuakie friends to score these releases!”
Inspired by the fruity flavors of Hawaiian Punch, the brewers combine 8 lbs of real fruit puree in every barrel: from tropical pineapple and sweet tangerine to ripe papaya and juicy guava — even zesty passion fruit!
This fresh-squeezed juice floats on a creamy body of smooth vanilla and lactose, along with a double-dry hopping of citrusy Citra and berry-delicious Mosaic, for a tidal wave of easy-drinking, tropical goodness.
And with only 400 cases in existence, you can bet I own my “screw it, let’s do it” mentality and scored two six-packs.
Because, let’s be honest — if you’re like me and lack self-control (especially around juicy AF beers), you’ll need that back-up stash soon.
