Availability: Draught and 4-Pack Bottles
Locations: Try our Beer Finder
Combining Cigar City’s expertise with tropical fruit flavors and Boulevard’s love of pale ales, Collaboration No. 5 – Tropical Pale Ale begins with a base of pilsner malt layered with Marris Otter, Munich, and caramel malts. Huge late hopping with a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Lemondrop, and Azacca lends bright citrus flavors. Freshly sliced grapefruit and passionfruit added at the end of the boil add a refreshing acidity and tropical fruit flavor and aroma.
