Tröegs Nimble Giant Double IPA

Tröegs Independent Brewing has announced the release of its double IPA, Nimble Giant.

This is a limited, once-a-year release.

Nimble Giant started in Tröegs’ small-batch Scratch Series as an experiment with Mosaic hops. After half a dozen test batches, the Tröegs brewing team hit upon a hop combination: Mosaic, Simcoe and Azacca.

“We loved our earliest trials with Mosaic,” recalls Tröegs co-founding brother and brewmaster John Trogner. “When we started dry-hopping with Mosaic and Simcoe together, we knew we were onto something. Fans would stop me on the street out in public and rave about the Scratch batches.”

In the end, Nimble Giant weighs in at 9% ABV and has notes of tropical fruit, pine sap,and honeysuckle, the brewery reports. It’s supported by a backbone of pilsner and Vienna malts.

Nimble Giant is available on draft and in 16-oz. cans across the brewery’s entire distribution footprint. Beer drinkers can find Nimble Giant and other Tröegs beers near them using the Tröegs Brew Finder.
