We know from our recent post: IPAs are the kings and queens of the craft beer category, so now is an ideal time for breweries to focus on India pale ales. Take Ninkasi Brewing Co. for instance. The Eugene, Ore.-based brewing brand recently unveiled a new look and lineup for its 12-ounce variety pack. Available in stores starting late December through April 2017, the IPA Variety Pack will include three, 12-ounce bottles of Ninkasi’s year-round IPA lineup: Easy Way IPA, Total Domination IPA, Dawn of the Red IPA and Hop Cooler Citrus IPA.
“Each of these beers profile a different take on a traditional IPA,” says Jamie Floyd, Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder. “Since our very first batch of Total Domination brewed in 2006, we are proud to continue making great IPAs for every type of beer drinker.”
Easy Way IPA — 4.7% ABV, 44 IBU
A dynamic medley of hops and a crisp, satisfying finish define this unexpectedly sessionable IPA. Aromatic and drinkable, the big, fruity hop nose and toasted malt flavor are anything but ordinary. Break the routine; go the Easy Way.
Total Domination IPA — 6.7% ABV, 81 IBU
This decidedly balanced Northwest IPA celebrates our love of hops. A delightful blend of citrus and floral hop notes dominate the senses while a trio of malt adds a clean finish. Totally hoppy, totally drinkable; the name says it all.
Dawn of the Red IPA — 7.0% ABV, 66 IBU
Bursting with tropical notes, this Red IPA captures the bright complexity of El Dorado and Mosaic hops. An assertive hop presence is carried by a subtle caramel backbone, unearthing a beer that is flavorful and juicy.
Hop Cooler Citrus IPA — 7.2% ABV, 74 IBU
Bright and tropical, this India Pale Ale brilliantly layers a citrusy blend of orange and tangerine with a robust hop profile. Crafted with real citrus and packed with as much flavor as a hop cooler, you won’t be able to stop at just one sip of this fresh and fruity beer.
Ninkasi’s IPA Variety 12-Pack will be available throughout each of the 14 states where its beer is sold.
