Tröegs Scratch 110


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Session IPA | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: 4.5%
Since the inception of our Scratch Beer series, some of the most heralded releases have been IPAs. Easily one of the most popular beer styles among craft beer drinkers, the IPA (India Pale Ale) has roots stretching back as far as the mid-19th century. Touted as a stronger, highly hopped version of a classic English Pale Ale, the style has mutated over the years, becoming arguably the benchmark beer style of the American craft beer movement. Until recently, IPAs have typically weighed in at around 6% ABV. However, with the advent of the “session IPA,” hopheads can still enjoy all of the aroma and flavor that have long since become hallmarks of the style without having to stop drinking after two or three. Aaaah, the session beer. What a beautiful invention!
