Tröegs Releases Citrusy & Soft Double Blizzard

Tröegs Independent Brewing announces the release of Double Blizzard, an amped-up version of its longest-running seasonal IPA, Blizzard of Hops.

Weighing in at 8.3% ABV, this semi-hazy Double IPA boasts huge citrus and pineapple notes with a hint of soft pine.

“We like to think of it as Blizzard of Hops’ big brother,” says Tröegs brewmaster and co-founding brother John Trogner.

To achieve Double Blizzard’s smooth texture and mouthfeel, Tröegs uses a cooler temperature for its kettle hop additions. This process softens the character of the Centennial, Chinook and El Dorado hops used in the beer’s recipe.

On the cold side, dry-hopping with four pounds per barrel of Chinook and Galaxy intensifies the aroma with complementary citrus and pine notes.

A limited release for the winter season, Double Blizzard is available in 16-oz. cans everywhere Tröegs beer is sold. Customers can find this and other Tröegs beers by using the Tröegs Brew Finder.
