Here at Tröegs, some of our most sought-after beers are Double IPAs. Think Nimble Giant, LolliHop and Double Blizzard. That’s why we’re really excited to release the brand new HopCyclone Hazy Double IPA.
HopCyclone’s haze is built with a grain bill of pilsner malt, Vienna malt and wheat. The haze helps prop up hop oils that would normally fall out during fermentation. Speaking of hops, HopCyclone gets a combination of Citra, Sabro, Sultana and Simcoe. And London-3 yeast does the hard work of fermenting this big Double IPA and also boosts the tropical notes.
HopCyclone gets its name from a dry-hopping system we have here at Tröegs. During fermentation, we pull out a portion of beer and with our Hop Gun, we dose in hops to create a densely hopped mix. That mix is then pumped back into the fermenter, and we repeat the process until all the hops that the recipe calls for have been added. To make sure the hops are thoroughly spread throughout the batch, we use our HopCyclone technology to churn the fermenters and make sure those oils hit every last drop of beer.
We taste: ripe pineapple, soft citrus and juicy peach.
The art for HopCyclone was conjured up by Art of Tröegs alum Devin Watson. If you’re a fan of our Double IPAs, you’ll remember the Candyland-inspired art he did for LolliHop. “I call myself a design parrot,” says Devin. “I can take a lot of styles and be fluid with them, make them my own. For the HopCyclone label, I imagined these groovy ’60s hop graphics and seeing them swirl all around the can.”
HopCyclone clocks in at 9% ABV and is available on draft and in 16-oz. cans wherever Troegs is sold. With heroic hop flavor and low bitterness, this once-a-year Double IPA will disappear without warning. Don’t miss HopCyclone!
