Tröegs Scratch 105


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Imperial/Double IPA | Ratings: 6 | Alcohol: 8.4%
You may remember our recent single hop Pale Ale, Scratch #100, brewed with an experimental hop variety known as El Dorado. Well, we decided to revisit this hop again, but this time we decided to go bigger… and bitter! The result is a hefty IPA bursting with juicy tropical and zesty citrus fruits flavors. But make no mistake! At only 66 IBUs (moderate by today’s standards), you can still enjoy the potent hop characteristics without completely destroying your taste buds. The variety of lighter malts lends a bit of balancing sweetness and prevents this IPA from going over the top. Enjoy a pint before it disappears. Your palate will thank you!
