One of Ninkasi Brewing Co.’s Special Release Series beers is making the jump to year-round status.
The beer is Hop Cooler Citrus IPA, a 7.2 percent ABV IPA brewed with Amarillo, Citra, Equinox and Simcoe hops as well as oranges and tangerine peel. The IPA was first introduced by the Eugene, Ore.-based brewery in January.
“We worked hard on this recipe to craft a super juicy beer,” said Jamie Floyd, Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder, in a post on the brewery’s website. “Combining four powerhouse hops and real orange and tangerine peel, we were able to achieve an IPA that perfectly accomplishes what we set out to do; like many of our fans, I can’t stop ordering it.”
According to Ninkasi, Hop Cooler Citrus IPA will be available packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles as well as 22-ounce bottles across the brewery’s distribution network starting on Aug. 22.
