Spring has sprung and American craft brewers are addressing things with exciting new IPAs you’re gonna want to have around.
Field Study (Hershey, PA) – Tröegs Independent Brewing has returned a popular limited release that evolved from its experimental small-batch Scratch Series. Mercilessly dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado, Tröegs Field Study is a 6.2% ABV slightly hazy IPA with bright grapefruit, mango, pear and melon notes.
“Field Study began life as Scratch #327, when we first started tinkering with some new hopping techniques,” explains Tröegs brewmaster John Trogner. “We built on those experiments over the next few Scratch releases and landed on a grain bill featuring a backbone of Rustic Pale Malt.”
“Rustic Pale malt is kilned slightly higher than most pale malts to amplify the complex cereal and slightly nutty notes,” added Trogner.
Rocky Mountain High (Fort Collins, CO) – Odell Brewing has released a brand new seasonal that was inspired by the brewery’s strong sense of place. Brewed with innovative American hop varieties like Cashmere, Sabro, and Strata, Odell Imperial Mountain Standard Hazy IPA is a hefty 9% ABV India Pale Ale with bright hop flavors, low bitterness, and a slight haze.
Hitting The Jackpot (Stratford, CT) – Two Roads Brewing and Mohegan Sun are celebrating their new partnership which starts with the brewery being named the “official craft beer partner” of the gaming resort and ends with an exclusive new beer inspired by the casino. Now available everywhere at Mohegan Sun, and all over Connecticut soon, Two Roads Jackpot Juice Hazy IPA is a 5.8% ABV India Pale Ale with bright citrus notes balanced out by tropical hop character.
“Combining our sense of adventure with Mohegan Sun’s playful energy was just a natural fit,” said Brad Hittle, co-founder and CEO of Two Roads Brewing Co. “For the first time ever, a collaboration beer was developed by our brewers and the team at Mohegan Sun, and they hit the jackpot with a beer that delivers full-on flavor.”
