Ninkasi Brewing Company (Eugene, Oregon) has officially announced that Stratascope IPA has arrived to serve as the brewery’s new Spring/Summer 2021 Seasonal Release.
Originally developed on Ninkasi’s “innovative small-batch system in February 2020 and then scaled up to production levels for this release,” Stratascope IPA is an American India Pale Ale that “strongly features the Strata hop.” Coming in at 6.4% ABV and 49 IBUs, Stratascope IPA allows “Strata’s hop character of stone fruits like apricot and peach [to] dance with passionfruit and grapefruit atop a light dank platform to create a powerful geometry that’s ready to dazzle from within.”
“Our pilot brewing system has allowed us to innovate in new ways,” said Director of Brewing Operations Dr. Daniel Sharp. “It’s fun to experiment with these new hops to create some delicious new beers with the complex aroma and flavor profiles they emit.”
Stratascope IPA is rolling out now and will hang around through the months of spring and summer 2021. You can expect to find this new Seasonal available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 19.2 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Oregon and throughout the rest of Ninkasi’s distribution footprint. Prost!
