Tröegs Independent Brewing has released the 2021 batch of its popular, annual Double IPA, Nimble Giant.
Nimble Giant came up through the brewery’s small-batch Scratch Series, starting as an experiment with Mosaic hops. After about half a dozen test batches, the Tröegs brewing team landed on a hop combination — Mosaic, Simcoe and Azacca.
Nimble Giant has notes of grapefruit, pineapple and honeysuckle. Clocking in at 9% ABV, this deep-orange double IPA is balanced by a backbone of pilsner and Vienna malt, the company says.
This fan favorite scores an “Outstanding” on BeerAdvocate, and consistently hits the top 10 trending beers on Untappd, the company adds.
Nimble Giant is available on draft and in 4-packs and cases of 16-oz. cans everywhere Tröegs beer is sold.
This follows the recent release of Tröegs Summer Better Variety 15-pack.
