Baird NT-2 Extra Imperial IPA


Formerly brewed at Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Style: Imperial/Double IPA | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8%
NT-2 Extra IPA carries 101 hop bittering units contributed largely by the trio of clean, high-alpha American varieties Warrior, Magnum and Galena. Flavor- and aroma-hopping are exclusively with a combination of East Kent Golding and Styrian Golding. We then triple dry-hop the beer, again with East Kent Golding and Styrian Golding, one week each in three different conditioning tanks. Finally, we krausened at packaging to produce a secondary fermentation, maturation and natural carbonation in keg. NT-2 Extra IPA is available only on draught and only at the Nakameguro Taproom (although a couple brewer’s share kegs might be available at the Fishmarket Taproom also). Its release on Saturday, May 8 kicks off the 2-day Nakameguro Taproom 2-year anniversary celebration. Please join Sayuri and me there for a pint or two.
