Alley Kat has another dragon on the loose.
Jade Dragon, the latest in the Dragon Double IPA series, is hitting the streets this week, bringing tropical notes in time for summer.
For hop heads out there the Dragon DIPA series brings 75+ IBU of hoppy goodness — where the Red Dragon was flavoured with Simcoe hops, Jade is single hopped with Citra variety hops.
“We wanted to brew a Dragon Series DIPA with hops that would honour the season. Citra hops have flavours of grapefruit, passionfruit and even lychee, which are perfect flavours for spring,” Alley Kat co-owner Neil Herbst said. “It’s an exciting new addition to the Dragon Series.”
Alley Kat Brewer Brian Westcott says the hops varieties are fun to experiment with.
“The goal is to take hoppiness to a bold new level, but in the end still have a highly drinkable beer,” he said.
“Jade Dragon DIPA achieves this and we’re excited for it to hit the shelves.”
The Dragon series is part of the Big Bottle series from Alley Kat. Look for it through your local liquor store, or search liquorconnect.com
