Harpoon Brewery’s Hoppy Adventure in Cans is Here
(Boston, MA) – In the fall of 2014, Harpoon Brewery put a hoppy, citrusy, but not tire-out-the-palette-bitter double IPA on tap in their brewery tasting room in Boston. Brewed on Harpoon’s 10-barrel pilot system, the beer was the result of the brewery’s ongoing hop experimentation. It quickly became one of the most sought after beers on tap at the brewery, so last fall Harpoon released it on draft only with limited distribution. Still, fans of the beer clamored for more, and Harpoon was listening. Introducing Harpoon Hoppy Adventure Double IPA, now available in 16 oz. can 4-packs.
Harpoon Hoppy Adventure has a pronounced citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Golden pale with a slight haze, it has a subtly sweet character from the malt profile and a crisp, hoppy finish.

About the Harpoon Brewery:
The Harpoon Brewery was founded in 1986 by three beer lovers who wanted more and better beer options.

Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award winning IPA and UFO beers, along with special seasonal selections. In 2000 Harpoon purchased a second brewery in Windsor, VT, making Harpoon the 19th largest craft brewer in the US. Harpoon has since introduced the limited batch 100 Barrel Series and the as well as the all-natural Harpoon Craft Cider made from freshly pressed apples.
In 2012 Harpoon was the recipient of the Green Business Award from the City of Boston. Harpoon has been recognized by the Boston Globe as one of Massachusetts’ Best Places to Work.
