If you love hops, you have yet another reason to love the local brewing scene. This Thursday, Six Row Brewing Company will be releasing their newest creation, a Double IPA. Here’s a description of the beer:
“Bigger in hop bittering, alcohol strength, and hop character than a traditional India Pale Ale, Six Row Double IPA is sure to please even the most discerning hop-head! Also known as Imperial IPA, this intensely hoppy yet very drinkable beer lets the malty characteristics take a step back allowing the hops to really shine.
Brewed with almost two (2) pounds of hops per barrel and left unfiltered, the Six Row Double IPA showcases the citrusy and piney characteristics of the Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook hops. Served in a 10oz snifter. (ABV: 8.4%, Bitterness Units: 68 IBU’s, Color 8.0, Original Gravity: 18 degrees Plato)”
Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook are three of my favorite hop varieties, so I can’t wait to give this beer a taste.
