Odell Brewing’s latest limited release is Hammer Chain, a Fresh Grind Double IPA.
Coming in at 8% ABV, Hammer Chain is Rupture’s bigger, meaner, older brother, the company says. This Fresh Grind Double IPA was named after the blades of the hammer mill that pulverize each whole-flower hop, releasing the lupulin inside.
“Two years ago we released Rupture and since then we’ve learned a thing or two about Fresh Grind IPAs,” says Brendan McGivney, COO. “It was only a matter of time before we went big with a second release.”
Hammer Chain is brewed with American hop varieties, with flavors of drippy tropical fruit, radiant peach and sweet stone fruit, the company ays. The whole flower hops are ground onsite with Odell’s custom hammermill.
Hammer Chain Fresh Grind DIPA is available through July, on draft and in 6-pack cans, across Odell’s 19-state footprint.
