Your favorite brewing brothers at Troegs Brewing Co just released a brand new double IPA…


Nimble Giant!



It started off in their small-batch Scratch beer series, but once everyone got a taste of this juicy hop combination, they had to bring it back! It started as an experiment with Mosaic hops, and after six Scratch batches it became Nimble Giant. But how does it taste?? Here’s what the brewery has to say about that:


Tasting notes
We like how Nimble Giant builds. The layers of Mosaic, Azacca and Simcoe hops take over your senses. Mango, tropical fruit and creamsicle notes give the beer a silky, juicy underbelly that builds to a punch in the face of grapefruit rind, honeysuckle and pineapple.



And for all you foodies out there, here are some tasty suggestions on Nimble Giant food pairings!



Upcoming Troegs Events:

Christmas in July, Featuring 2013 Troegs Mad Elf!

Time: 7 pm – close
