THUNDER BAY, ON – Sleeping Giant Brewing has announced details of a new limited edition brew that is being released today.
Hoppet IPA is a 6% abv and 70 IBU beer that is described as follows:
An American IPA brewed with 2 row pale ale malt, two different types of caramel malt and a small amount of wheat malt for foam retention. It uses typical Pacific Northwest hops with four additions in the kettle plus additional dry hopping. The aroma and flavour from these hops is citrusy, herbal and some grapefruit. It finishes dry and is quite bitter. Best served slightly cold with a big head to appreciate the aroma. For the hopheads!
Hoppet IPA will be available for growler fills at the Sleeping Giant retail store starting an 12 noon today. It will also be available on tap at select bars and pubs in Thunder Bay, with the list of locations to be posted on the Sleeping Giant Facebook page.
