Tröegs Scratch 101


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 4 | Series Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.8%
A few years ago, hopheads got their fix by way of insanely hopped Imperial IPAs; gargantuan beers that pushed the threshold of your palate and obliterated your taste buds. Most of them also boasted pretty hefty alcohol content. Our latest Scratch Beer proves that bigger isn’t always better. This session-strength India-style Ale was brewed with a clean malt base and a variety of American hops to showcase the citrusy, resinous nature of those little green nuggets. At only 4.8% ABV, you can enjoy multiple pints in one sitting without feeling too groggy afterwards.
