The Karl Strauss collaboration with Societe called Catch You On The Flip Side IPA launched this week at all Karl Strauss Brewpubs and at retail locations across California. Originally planned to be brewed and released over the summer, this 6.4% San Diego-Style IPA is finally here and they’re stoked to be able to share it with the world.
“What’s that they say? Something about “the best laid plans”… When we set out to brew this San Diego-Style IPA with the fine folks at Societe Brewing Company, we daydreamed about enjoying this deliciously tropical slice-of-heaven with all of our friends and family in the heat of summer. But hey, plans change. “Catch You on the Flip Side” was the last thing we said to each other before lockdown, and if this isn’t the “flip side” we’re living in, we don’t know what is. Fortunately, we got the band back together, and decided to pull out all the stops. We packed this one to the brim with Southern Hemisphere* hops for a clean, crisp, and endlessly drinkable IPA bursting with tropical flavors and aromas. The world looks a bit different from when we started, but great beer is great beer, no matter what side you’re on.”
Southern Hemisphere Hops: This refers to hops grown in the planet you call Earth’s lower half, or Southern Hemisphere. This includes areas such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Typically, this term refers to Australian and New Zealand hops.
