Alaskan Brewing Co. will now be offering its SMaSH Galaxy IPA as a year-round release.
This formerly limited release double IPA is brewed entirely with Galaxy hops and pilsner malt. The beer was first released as part of the Juneau, Alaska-based brewery’s Pilot Series in 22-ounce bottles back in early 2016, and then 12-ounce bottles later that year.
The term SMaSH comes from the technique of using only one malt and one hop to focus on the hop’s unique character and stands for single malt and single hop.
According to the brewery’s website and social media, SMaSH Galaxy will start to be available year-round as of Monday, April 2.
