Beer Spotlight: Coming in Hops

Beer Spotlight: Coming in Hops
August 1, 2014 QuickFix

Our Summer Brewery Series continues into August this Friday with a special feature of two spectacular beers: Triple C Brewing’s Coming in Hops, and Boulevard Brewing’s Two Jokers Double Wit.

From our great friends at Triple C, Coming in Hops was brewed in honor of their 100th batch. This Imperial IPA comes in at a smack-in-the-face 10.5% ABV, aged in bourbon barrels to achieve a mellow bourbon and oak flavor. It’s a special release, and the brewery has run through its allotment already. So Summit is about the only place you can try it!

Triple C explains: “We started with an immense amount of 2-row malted barley that maxed out our brewhouse. Four massive additions of Centennial Hops were added throughout the boil to achieve a big bitterness that then mellowed in the barrels. We also added wildflower honey to the boil to help boost the alcohol content and provides a small amount of floral aroma to pair with with the citrusy hops. After some time aging, we continously dry hopped in the barrels with Citra, Centennial, and Amarillo to give this ale a huge hop aroma.”

On tap this Friday, August 1 at 5:00pm. Hurry in!
