Great Lakes & Amsterdam Collaboration Life Sentence IIIPA Out This Week


TORONTO, ON – Great Lakes Brewery and Amsterdam Brewery have announced details of their third annual collaborative beer release, which is due out later this week.

Life Sentence IIIPA is a 10% abv and 100+ IBU triple IPA brewed using 100 kg of late harvest Chinook hops from Yakima, Washington. It’s described as follows:

Life Sentence IIIPA starts off with a punch of sweetness that almost immediately gives way to a big battering of hops like being hit with a ball and chain from the leg of a skeleton. Big pine presence meshed in with a healthy dose of tropical fruits (kiwi, grapefruit). This behemoth IIIPA has a soft mouthfeel with a pleasant level of carbonation that helps tame the 100kg of hops. Juicy in the middle, finishing bone-dry.

Life Sentence will be launched this Friday December 18th at 12:00 noon, with 473 ml cans available at the Great Lakes retail store for $5 each. A limited number of kegs will be tapped at the Amsterdam Brewhouse and other select beer bars on the same day.
