Ecliptic Brewing releases Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale

Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale from Ecliptic Brewing is the latest in a growing trend of beers inspired by cocktails. Hoku-Lele is Hawaiian for “shooting star” and the beer includes flavors of pineapple, mango, passionfruit, almond, coconut, and cinnamon. 16oz cans will begin shipping in early July and draft will also be available.

More from a press release:

“This beer plays off those tiki type cocktails you order while on vacation,” says Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris. “There’s notes of tropical fruit like pineapple and passionfruit, while Sabro hops impart subtle coconut essence. Cinnamon and almond add unique flavor and complexity. If you can’t travel this summer, we’re basically bringing the beach to you.” 

Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale will be the third release in the new 16-ounce can format for Ecliptic Brewing. It will support the Cosmic Collaboration Series and the rotating Vega IPA Series already in the market.

Hoku-lele Tiki-Inspired Tropical Ale will be released in both draft and 16-ounce cans throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network around July 1st. Visit Ecliptic’s website for up to date details on potential release events.
