Ecliptic Brewing Releases Star Party Lavender & Lemon Brut IPA

Brut IPAs don’t seem to be going anywhere, and Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing has an interesting new take on the emerging sub-style with Star Party Lavender & Lemon Brut IPA. Star Party is the brewery’s latest Special Release beer and a play on a recent early version released last year. Star Party drops in 500ml bottles and draft in late March and is inspired by the flavors of spring with floral and citrus notes complementing Lemondrop and experimental hops and is described as effervescent and refreshing.

More from a press release:

John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing Owner and Brewmaster, says the brew team has really been able to showcase their creativity with this upcoming release. “We have had fun experimenting with the Brut style and building on our previous Star Party,” he says. “We are excited for everyone to try the new take on it.”

Star Party Lavender & Lemon Brut IPA will release in late March. It will be released in both draft and 500ml bottles throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network.
