Hop Series IPA – Hallertau Blanc & 06297

India Pale Ale

Did you know?

Cigar City Brewing is proud to announce its Hop Series, a succession of ales and lagers that celebrate hop flavor and aroma. Hop Series ales and lagers are exclusive to the Cigar City Brewing Tasting Room and feature some of the newest and most exciting hop varietals available to create idiosyncratic, one-off beers.

The inaugural beer in the Hop Series is an American IPA brewed with Hallertauer Blanc, a German-origin hop boasting notes of lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, and Steiner Farms’ Experimental Hop #06297, a brand new hop of Eastern Gold, Apollo and Cascade origin. These two newly developed hops combine to create a fruit forward, low bitterness IPA that’s at once beguiling and refreshing.

Hop Series IPA – Hallertau Blanc & 06297

Tasting Notes

Lemongrass, kiwi and orange peel aromas present themselves assertively but harmoniously, with peach-like esters complimenting on the nose. A palate of lime leaf, clementine and sauvignon blanc grapes plays on the tongue with a snappy bitterness and lively carbonation adding dimension. Light bread-like malt flavors tie this complex yet familiar IPA together neatly.
