BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
With 2011 coming to a close, we are in the mood for hops! Our brewers have been filling up the hop dosers and hopback with ridiculous amounts (and blends) of hops while learning to tame our new twin brewhouses. Scratch 55-2011, a Double IPA, has the subtlety of a hop sledgehammer. Yep, there’s a nice amount of color and sweetness from a massive blend of Munich and Crystal malts, but the playmaker here is a bevy of mouth-puckering hops that create a taste bud-numbing blend of pine and grapefruit that begin in your nose and linger long after your glass is empty. Tread gently beer lovers as this high-ABV level is masked by the big hop flavor.
