Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
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.
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.
