Tröegs Independent Brewing announces the release of Double Blizzard, an amplification of its winter IPA, Blizzard of Hops.
Weighing in at 8.3% ABV, this semi-hazy Double IPA has citrus and pineapple notes with hints of soft pine, the company reports.
To achieve Double Blizzard’s texture and mouthfeel, Tröegs uses a cooler temperature for its kettle hop additions. This process is meant to soften the character of the Centennial, Chinook and El Dorado hops used in the beer’s recipe.
Double Blizzard is dry-hopped with four pounds per barrel of Chinook and Galaxy.
A limited release for the winter season, Double Blizzard is available in 16-oz. cans and 1/2 and 1/6 kegs throughout the states where Tröegs beer is sold.
