I lamented. They caved.
Just received from Howard Weintraub at Drafting Room Exton, the brewing notes & description on the 15th Anniversary Ale to be released next Wednesday. It’s an Imperial IPA:
Brewed exclusively with our friends at Troegs Brewing this bold imperial IPA features a new hop variety called Apollo. Apollo hops are high acid with an intense aroma. Married with other high alpha hops, 15th anniversary has an intense staying power in the back of the throat. “Apollo” is dubbed by Troegs as a hop with “stinky grapefruit and a hint of perfume.” The dark color might lead you to believe that some malt may shine through; but no, the hops are the true player in this ale.
