Oggi’s has been brewing beer since 1995, and what better way to celebrate such a rich heritage than with an IPA series during their 20th year in existence (Opened 1991). The IPA series will begin with a Red IPA in spring. It is in the style of an American IPA using 2-row malt and imported light crystal malt, with a splash of extra dark crystal malt creating a nice light red color and clean finish. We use CTZ, Chinook, Amarillo and Centennial hops in the brewing process following it up with a dry hop of Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo in the fermenter bringing out a nice citrus aroma. We hope you enjoy the 20th year as much as the first. Cheers!

A: The beer pours amber in color with a slightly soapy white head.
S: A nice citrus hop aroma to the beer with some grapefruit and grapefruit peel. Other citrus peel notes and a nice pine smell too. A slight soapiness and a bit of bready malts.
T: Sharp citrus, mostly grapefruit, bite with a solid bitterness to it. Some pine hop flavors also give the beer bitterness. Toffee and bready malts with a little bit of a toast flavor to it.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Easily the best beer that was available at Oggi’s. Pretty good stuff, actually.
