COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SCRATCH #63-2012 – DANNY’S IPA was brewed to honor Danny Glover, our good friend who passed away earlier this year. Dubbed Danny’s IPA, this Black IPA is modeled after Danny’s favorite beer, Nugget Nectar. It clocks in at 7.0% ABV and 100 IBUs. Per John Trogner III, “If anyone says it’s not hoppy enough, punch them in the face.” Rotten grapefruit flavors from Columbus hops dominate Scratch #63. The dry-hopping rate is nearly one pound per barrel creating a dank, piney aroma that gives way to a grassy finish. This beer was dry hopped at a rate of 1.25 lbs. per barrel, more than two times the rate of Nugget Nectar. Tröegs Brewery will donate $10 from every case of Danny’s IPA sold out of the brewery in Hershey to the Gift of Life donation program. BARLEY Pils, Munich, Crystal, Midnight Wheat Hints of caramel come from the Crystal malt; the Midnight Wheat gives a dark black color and a hint of roast without the astringency associated with other roasted malts.

355mL shared on the RBSG bus. Poured clear brown, small sticky lace. Nose is cheesy, herbal, nutty. Black IPA? Taste is very bitter, roasty, heavy bitterness. Long, hoppy finish. Definitely Black IPA.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle... Pours dark brown - practically black - with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma features dark chocolate and deeply roasted malts with hints of molasses and leather. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. Tastes almost like a Danish imperial stout - burnt malt accompanied by tannic, rindy bitterness. Finishes scorched and tongue-numbing. Not very bitter for 100 IBUs. Bottle generously shared by growler!

sherm1016 (1110) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2012
12oz bottle from Pinnochio’s. Pours a jet black color with a tan head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, pine, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, piney, a little roasty, but not as much as some Black IPAs, with a roasty, pine finish.

egajdzis (5248) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Dark brown with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cocoa, a bit of roast, pine, and light citrus. Taste of citrus, pine, light tobacco, some cocoa, some sweetness, and a hoppy finish.

illidurit (2104) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle on the RBSG 2012 bus. Pours a lot more brown than ’black.’ Bready, light roasty, herbal old hops, clearly getting a little long in the tooth. Bitter finish.
