Second Self Beer Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has announced that it is going old school on hop heads with the upcoming Limited Release of Make IPA Great Again.
Harkening back to the days before the IPA haze craze consumed the craft beer community, Make IPA Great Again is a “throwback double IPA” created by Second Self’s Co-founders Jason Santamaria and Chris Doyle “as an homage to the bitter and clear IPAs that inspired them to start brewing over a decade ago.” With a “YUGE” hop bill jam-packed with Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Simcoe hops, this ‘Murican Double IPA “has tremendous notes of pine, resin, covfefe and citrus with a bitter finish.” For a more eloquent, stately explanation of what you can expect from this beer, here’s the brewery’s full description for Make IPA Great Again (9% ABV, 111 IBUs):
“Many people are saying we have the best hops. Believe me, we have all the best hops. Billions and billions of hops. Believe me, folks! Other beers are a YUGE problem! Beers today do not remember what it was like when this country made the best beers, the biggest beer, the most bitterest beers!!
Your milkshake pasty stout IPAs are FAKE NEWS!!. This bitter beer is DANK, PINEY, RESINY, and clear; just like the RETRO forgotten beers of this country. We make sure it has a tremendous flavor in a bigly tariffed aluminum tall boy! I have to thank our employees for their great jerb Putin in hard hours to make this magnificent beer.”
Make IPA Great Again will debut on April 28 in Second Self’s Westside taproom and distribution will follow shortly after that release. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer establishments located within Second Self’s distribution footprint in Alabama and Georgia. Prost!
